Early MURANO Glass Corroso(?) Vase w/ Label

Post by iLovePottery&Glass on September 20th 2013, 3:15 am

Picked this up today, found the label on Fossilfly but no attribution. I know the technique isn't corroso, its like its made to look ancient or buried. I used to knew what it was... Can anyone jog my memory? Anyone know the label?

In stained glass work, we'd call that shiny bit iridescent. Is the whole vase like that? If it is it could be Murano IRIDESCENT AURENE IRIDATO (translation stolen from Google because I don't know Italian).

The technique is 'a scavo' (the same root as the English 'excavate').

The rooster label seems to have been used by an export company and applied to a few different manufacturers, rather than for one specific glassworks.

The type of iridescent scavo decoration is quite similar to that produced by Gino Cenedese in the mid-late 1950s.
