Murano Labels 4

Livio Seguso
This is one way Livio Seguso signed his glass. Sometimes his whole name is used. Livio made glass for Barbini, Salviati, Seguso AV, Gral Glas, and his own company during the course of his career.
 
Seguso Vetri d'Arte
Barovier-Seguso Ferro came together in 1933. It was founded by people who were laid off from VA Barovier during the Great Depression. The company reorganized in 1937 to become Seguso VdA, so the label is included in this section.
 
This paper label was used from the late 1940s until the early 1960s.

This unusual label was on a Seguso VdA bird. Another bird of this type was found that had a label like the red one pictured above. The label is probably from the 1950-early 1960s. Photo is courtesy of Holly Geeslin.
 
This shield form paper label was used from the early 1960s until the late 1970s.

This golden label was found on a Seguso basket. The label is small -- 0.75" x 0.25" (1.9 x 0.6 cm). Year of label is unknown. The writing on the label may be the art work of a child. :)
  
This plastic label is on a swan stem vase that was probably made in the 1970-80s. Seguso went through reorganization many times during this period. Many things are signed Seguso AV during this time.

Alessandro Tagliapietra
I am not certain if this is a furnace or a store label for Alessandro Tagliapietra. This label is contemporary. The paperweight it is on was made about 2002.
 
Arnaldo Zanella
The signature is faint, so hard to see. The Z is large. You can see the top of the Z, though the rest of the letter fades away.
 
Licio Zanetti
Licio Zanetti signed most of his works Zanetti L. He used his full name on pieces he considered masterpieces.
Vetri Murano (VM) label for Fratelli Zanetti. The number on the label is 10 or 010. This label is on a the same bird that had the signature shown. (The VM labels are different than the VAM labels that are currently in use by Promovetro. The numbers will not be the same between the two systems. The VM system is no longer in use.)
