    It all started with Archimede Seguso, born on the island of Murano, in 1909. Shy, brilliant and quite distinguished, Archimede Seguso was a man of intellect, yet at the same time, he used the art of glass making to express himself. Never following any model or predefined idea, Seguso would come up with different methods and techniques never seen before in glass making. It was this boldness mixed with his genius that positioned him as a reference point for other artists and artisans.

    Post #1 of 3.
    This is the slightly smaller of the two. Has a lot of Aventurine, with green as the basic color. Green Eyes. This may be considered a Polveri piece. Has a scallop edged Seguso Label.

    6 3/4" Tall,
    9" Mouth to Tail,
    2 3/4" Deep.

    Thanks for Stopping by.

      Wonderful. I love the aventurine. An unusual shaped fish. I think they're great!

      Wow ! I am jealous. Have one piece that may be a. Seguso. No label. Duck in flight bowl. Thanks for sharing.
