A Sommerso vase designed by Flavio Poli for Seguso Vetri d’Arte, circa 1950s. Unsigned as usual. Bears
generic import labels. Though a large number of sommerso vases are attributed to Poli, few, in fact, have
any association with Poli. Poli‟s sommerso‟s are almost always in muted colors. Should a sommerso be
“electric” in color it is almost certainly not the work of Poli

“foil backed” Cenedese label discontinued in the 3rd qtr of the 20th C. The scavo technique was meant to
impart the surface appearance of ancient/buried glass. Because the scavo technique produced noxious and
environmentally dangerous fumes, this technique was eventually banned

letters are visible under the most exacting angle/light). Nb: for Hanky‟s this size, partial/complete acid
signatures are often absent or incredibly difficult to see

Vaso Radiale, a vase designed by Giampaolo Seguso from the limited edition of 99 produced in 1993.
Engraved: Giamp Seguso Murano 66/99. Accompanying this vase is an original watercolor by G. Seguso ,
and a Certificate of Authenticity. Giamp. Seguso is the son of the monumentally important Archemede
Seguso and a member of one of the oldest and most famous Italian glass families. Cf: Rosa Barovier

An internally decorated, cased and hot sculpted vase by Fratelli Toso, circa mid 1900s

A Losanghe vase by Archimede Seguso, model #5869, circa 1951, with firm‟s labels (the serrated round
label is a known Archimede Seguso export label; the other, a model label inscribed 5869). Unsigned as
usual. This model is reproduced in the exceedingly rare period “internal” working design catalogue of
Archimede Seguso (comparable to the “Blu” Catalogue of Venini). The Losanghe series was first
introduced by Archimede Seguso for the 1951 Milan Triennial. Losanghe roughly resemble a kind of
„pezzato‟ technique. Interestingly, after many years the glue from the firm‟s labels may eventually etch the
surface imparting factitious “etched” signatures anywhere the labels were placed on the vase surface. cf.
