Salviati & Co. (Murano)

Post by Nic on November 8th 2009, 9:00 pm

Miniature 'dented' vases, based on Roman designs, produced by Salviati c.1880-1920. Decoration ranges from crackled gold leaf (an effect attained by rolling the molten glass in the gold leaf before blowing it into shape and allowing the expansion to cause the rifts), to coloured chips melted in the gather to plain self-coloured.

Sizes of these illustrated range between 45mm (the green vase) and 65mm (the red vase):

'Orrizonte' vase from the 1990s, produced for Salviati at the Venini factory - the two glassworks were, for a time, owned by a single company and all Salviati production was moved to the Venini works and Salviati existed in name only.

This goes toward explaining the Venini-esque colours and design.
