The Collector’s Fair is a main event for me each month. It is held on the first Sunday each month at the Wentworth Park Greyhound Track in inner-city Glebe. I found this little sommerso laying on its side on a table. I have always been a sucker for sommerso’s! I know a lot of people dislike them and Italian glass. But that’s just a matter of taste.
This one is more interesting because of its size. It stands just 17 cm or 6.7 inches tall. At its mouth it has a diameter of just 0.75 cm or 0.3”. Very fine work. It has a really nice colour and works well with other pieces.
Here I have put it with a Royal Worcester piece called “Italy” by Freda Doughty (1895-1972) who was born in San Remo, Italy.
I'm open to suggestions about the factory. Archemide Seguso? Perhaps the colour suggests someone else?
