I bought these 2 beauties at an estate sale. The top of the one on the right is broken off. The other one is in excellent condition.
I almost passed up buying both for several reasons. It was the first day of the sale, and, therefore, the most expensive day. More importantly, I didn't know who made these pieces. Murano? Scandinavian? Cheap, mass-produced knock-offs? And I don't like to buy broken pieces. Also, neither is signed or marked in any way.
But, the cost for both really wasn't so much and buying them then saved me a trip back. The colors in both are beautiful, clear, floating, and layered. While one color might cover another, the colors are not mixed. They are heavy, a good 5 pounds each. The unbroken one is 11 inches tall and the broken one is 9 inches tall. I think the top of the broken one can be easily rounded off. The fact that it is a different shape and color than the other intrigued me. All of these things have added to my belief, after some internet research, that they are, in fact, Flavio Poli Seguso Murano Art Glass.
What do you think?
