Please be aware that you are buying vintage glassware. I always inspect items in great detail and list any major faults such as cracks & chips in the description. You should expect some age related signs of wear such as very small fine surface scratches/marks. Also many of the items are hand made, they may have small imperfections such as bubbles, inclusions & lumps within the glass and often tool marks from where they have been shaped and worked in the manufacturing process. These are not usually seen by collectors as faults or damage, but as part of the character of hand made glass and are not usually mentioned in the description.
Archimede Seguso - Birds Ducks
Glassmaster, designer, entrepreneur. Born in Murano, the son of the glassmaster Antonio Seguso, he began work at a very early age in the Vetreria Artistica Barovier where his father was a partner. In 1933, he was one of the founding partners of the Artistica Vetreria e Soffieria Barovier Seguso & Ferro, later the Seguso Vetri d’Arte, where he worked as the maestro of the principal team, crafting the pieces designed by Flavio Poli, and later his own pieces inspired by the Novecento style. He sold his share of the glasshouse to his partners, and in 1946 founded a new glasshouse, the Vetreria Artistica Archimede Seguso, where he was first maestro and creator of almost all the works produced there. The first glass pieces were still inspired by the Novecento, as were his sculptures modelled in hot glass; at the same time he experimented with thin blown glass textured in many ways, adapting ancient decorative techniques to the styles of the Fifties, such as for example the variations of filigrana which he presented throughout the decade (Merletti, Composizione Lattimo, Piume,etc.). During the Sixties and Seventies, he created intensely coloured glass works such as the colori sovrapposti and the fasce sovrapposte, and further pushed the filigrana technique with his Spinati, and a Petali glass pieces; more recently, he based his production on strong chromatic contrast. Among his last works is the series of sculptures called Rotture, conceived as original works and made in solid massiccio sommerso glass, a concretization of the profound reflections of this artist, who died recently on the island of Murano.
