Elio Raffaeli Dolphin Sculpture
Gambaro & Poggi Dolphin
AVeM Baleen Whale
This unusual whale has a Decora Import label. I have seen one of these that had a red AVeM label. The whale is decorated internally with a random scramble of canes and latticino (tutti frutti or end of day). It is immediately recognizable by the applied baleen mouth. The design is made with various colors and decorations. Photos are courtesy of Pam Townsend.
Bottaro Seal with Ball
Bottaro makes many pieces that look like the Vincenzo Nason pieces, both in form and technique. This Bottaro seal could easily be mistaken for the V. Nason seal that is shown to the right of the page. Note that the bend in the tail is not so deep for the Bottaro seal. The seal in the picture also has its front flippers off the ground. It is not difficult to distinguish the work of the two, since Bottaro signs their things. Photos are courtesy of Chris Cooper. mark.games9 on eBay
Vincenzo Nason Dolphin
The dolphins in the pictures are colored brown or gray dorsally and are clear on bottom. They are 6.5" (16.5 cm) long and 5" high (12.7 cm). Each has a V Nason label on its side. Photos are courtesy of Chris Cooper. mark.games9 on eBay
Seguso Vetri d'Arte Dolphin Sculpture
Licio Zanetti Dolphin
This clear glass dolphin is signed "Zanetti L" on the base of the head. The dolphin is 7.25" long and has wonderful optical effects. The back appears to be colored, but it is a reflection of the blue cloth the dolphin is set on.
Licio Zanetti Seal
This heavy clear glass seal is signed Zanetti L on bottom. The seal is 7" tall and was made in the 1960s.
Vincenzo Nason Seal with Ball
V. Nason made two types of seals -- one design with a ball and one without. This seal has a ball. It has a dorsal brown coloration. These seals were made in different colors. It is 5.25" (13.3 cm) tall and 6" (15 cm) long. Photo is courtesy of Antiquerose of Angela Bowey's Glass Message Board.
Archimede Seguso Sea Lion
Seguso Gianni Whale
This whale is shaded gray dorsally. It is 5" (12.7 cm) long and 4" (10.2 cm) tall and has a Vetri Murano label with the number 35 for Seguso Gianni. Photos are courtesy of Chris Cooper. mark.games9 on eBay
