    It's a lovely piece but were you ever able to confirm whether Nason was the designer since Cenedese was unsure? One would think they would know.

    This site states "the owner was told by a reputable source that the horse was designed by Ermanno Nason and came from the 1970-75 collection of Gino Cenedese." That kind of statement would really make me dubious.

    Regardless, it's a lovely piece.

    Hi solver,
    Thanks for your comment. The 'reputable' source is a german company called 'design-and-arts.' They are very reliable for anything Cenedese. On ebay every night between 7pm-just after 8pm GMT. I did contact Cenedese. They confirmed it was Cenedese (signed underneath) but couldn't confirm it was Ermanno Nason. They didn't have the records to confirm this.
    Design-and-arts bought thousands of pieces from an old warehouse of old Cenedese stock some years ago. They've sold some great glass. Check out their website. So, as you see, this sculpture is still a mystery to me.
