    Beautiful Murano art glass piece. Clear, white, and pink glass form this what looks to be Sommerso vase. I could be wrong on that. Has a vintage generic Murano sticker and is not signed. Any information on this piece would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

      yes that is a Generic Murano label, and do not know and attribution to it.

      The sticker is probably a 'generic' Murano example - the 'double sommerso' is a pink and opaline combo - a cased 'alabastro' that was used by a few makers: Archemide Seguso ?

      Archimede Seguso .... sorry. My spelling is appalling these days!

      Thanks I'll do some searching on Seguso and see what turns up. Thank you for correcting me on the color combination and being double Sommerso. Learning. :)

      This shape is very reminiscent of some vases by Ogetti also.....

      Very pretty form, ad great colors..... Love this one.

      Thanks for the info. Welzebub! I will research Ogetti.

      I have a very similar vase DJ. It was manufactured by Oball under the direction of Luigi Onesto circa 1970's. Now, being that yours has a generic label, I'm not sure if it's the same maker. My example has the original Vetreria Artistica Oball sticker and not the label. I've never seen their label, so it's possible they could have used a generic label, but that's just a guess. Here are some pics where you can see they're very much alike.
