thanks for the links, good stuff ;-)
it is the Plaza design from Orrefors
thanks for the comments the curly-Q cord was fairly common in Italy in the 60s / 70s with certain pendant lamp designs
I am sure you probably have more valuable pieces but after looking at all your posts this is the piece I find most fascinating, like an abstract painting I rarely see these Bizantino pieces for sal...
Keith Haring supposedly got many of his ideas and style from the Tinga Tinga painters (artists) in Tanzania
maybe the coolest designs to come out of Murano = bizantino ;-)
thank you for the introduction to Japanese glass - wow I looked at your posts here and quite impressed with the designs / craftmanship
very cool set I have been eye-balling these types of sets in Italy but still learning
a truly special green colour
interesting millefiore design much more ORANGE than anything from Murano ;-)
with the aventurine details, likely Murano - fabulous colours
sputnik is a widely used term but that is likely how it will be described if it has odd light bulbs, good chance it is Italian ;-)
I have a vaguely similar piece and it might be "scavo" type from Cenedese or?
thanks it could very well be a Mazzega design
Cenedese also makes similar glass designs
Gambaro & Poggi in Murano have produced quite a few green scavo vases but yet to see this shape
double action switch two bulbs on one bulb on all OFF
thanks for the reply the lid just sits on the bowl diameter is 20 cm (8 inches) and height is 12 cm (5 inches)
named the Dafne pendant lamp
agreed that the workmanship does seem a bit crude on the glass beads ;-) I think the other beads are CORK but they could be some type of wood?
cast in the lower back of the sculpture is Fond d'Arte Firenze Made in Italy ;-)
my view as well ;-) one I might just keep good all purpose vase that you could actually use regularly
Italy is a veritable treasure trove there are hundreds of weekend markets + plenty of junk shops etc
thanks, fabulous value compared to Murano vases lots of handmade glass for the $$ paid
funny that I was just discussing Adolf Loos in connection with some similar lamps I have and in general the designs from Loos had wider frames the glass is fitted into I wish this was a Loos design...
agreed I am just fascinated by these pieces that took many many hours to make and then sold +/- 50 years later for pennies
I think they are tiny glass beads?
thanks for the comment if it is actually Cloisonne would that mean the beads are metal?
thanks for the comment I did buy it near Venice but that is not always meaningful ;-) it is quite weight-y
this could well be Czech glass Skrdlovice had some similar designs Jaroslav Svoboda made some similar designs too
much more interesting with the bulb lit ;-)
it could be Chinese, I am here to learn more Italians import stuff from China same as most other countries ;-l
I agree most of the similarly shaped pendant lamps I looked at would have the "V" shape facing up really I had no idea what it was when I bought it ;-)
a Luigi Onesto design?
beautiful vase! I am curios if the signature is on the base? yesterday I posted a lamp that I picked up and it might be a Luigi Onesto design
these pendants are not marked however I know there are many fakes and copies out there
a great tool ;-) I was having a difficult time finding a large glass model in Europe as it seems they mostly use the smaller model for lemons on a visit to Florida I finally found a large glass ...
painted both sides ;-)
with the lamp off it looks like a Murano piece I have once it is lit, it looks entirely different though for sure a cool lamp
Ebay is not a particularly reliable reference ;-) even the more pricey 1stdibs, Pamono + Chairish can be totally inaccurate Instagram is probably where I learn the most
thanks for the comments I was thinking the bubble pattern is like the perforated holes on a golf glove
cool they may very well be Czech-made that said, I buy everything posted in Italy with a few rare exceptions
funny that some Wagenfeld expert contacted me to tell me this was not actually his design it seems Atelier Peill & Putzler modified the Bonn Pendant size and then add embellishments and named it th...
it is AVeM bizantino style
really? how about Rogaška Glass Factory in Zagreb or Industrija Stakla in Pancevo and glass has been made in Bosnia for centuries
my title is incorrect, really not a millefiore not exactly sure what to call it? has a heavy sort of silver aventurine and crazy colours looking at it from different angles
the glass pattern is certainly similar to your vase of a different shape seems the handles are a similar colour as well and I vaguely remember the bottom of mine looking similar to your vase
thank you for the comment, quite interesting I also collect Murano jewelry when a cool piece comes around so many things to learn ;-) later I will post some old Murano bead necklace
