A Google search for 'Vanutti' just brings up this same auction, so not a clue.

Sure I've seen very similar bits in TK Maxx, though.

I don't have a huge knowledge of Italian glass (not really my thang) and it's very difficult to gauge the quality without being able to hold and inspect the item personally HOWEVER my gut instinct is that it's come from the Far East along with a million or two others fairly recently.

TK MAX all day, they have loads of this stuff, a lot of its good quality, its either Polish or Chinese. It pays to have a browse though I picked up a marked Stuart Crystal Conran bowl for a fiver, it was labelled up as Bohemian Crystal.

The branch here has ditched all the quality crystal (Rosenthal, Dartington, et al) in favour of large ugly blobby glass from the far east. *sigh*

Not 'signed' either - Ed, why don't you ask him if he's got a photo of the 'Vanutti' signature on the other one he sold Innocent

LOL - it's quite interesting though to see how far some people will go in their fib-telling just to sell a vase.

From the auction:
"As stylish today as the day it was made."

So... it's been stylish for about 48 hours then.

Laughter indeed, as stylish as the day last week when it came off the container ship from China.

I'm gonna ask him about this Vanutti chap too ... am feeling in a naughty mood today.

You know how we've highlighted the seller faking Troika, and there's another seller selling glass with faked Lalique signatures that we've discussed and now this fella making up Italian sounding names to add provenance to his mass produced Chinese carp? Should we think about setting up a thread dedicated to outing these types of 'interesting' sellers?

We'd have to be careful not to libel anyone but I'm sure it can be done and it may help stop some people from parting with their money in good faith. Whaddya reckon?

I dunno , it's a dodgy one, I think it's good that we tell each other in the forum if we think somethings not right ,nobody wants to be duped , but if an ad says, in the style of, or troika era ,etc. then that's ok , if, like him he is claiming it to be something it aint then by all means it should be made known , what do others think?
