    With a rather solid history in Murano, the Seguso family had lived and worked on this Venetian island for over 650 years, gaining popularity throughout time for their special glass making methods. They were considered experts thanks to their glass blowing technique, and young Archimede became familiar with the business at the very tender age of 11. He was put to work alongside experienced masters who taught him complex skills, and by the age of 17 he became a master and a partner in the furnace he worked in.

    Post #2 of 3
    This is the slightly larger 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.
