$400.xx Spring Sale
We are very proud to offer a rare, scarce two piece (paperweight vase) cigarette lighter aquarium set with internal fish, bubbles, & sea-weed by Seguso Dalla Venezia. We are certain of this Murano maker because it has his label. These labels are lucky to find! These “fish” were typically made during the 1950’s, although his factory is listed 1951-1965. Our first piece is a paperweight glass vase 4.5 high inches x 3.5 inches wide with a gold colored lighter insert. It has a single dark stripped fish with big yellow-orange eyes & filigrana fins. The fish is swimming around a single bubble pattern in sea-weed that is “straight”. The second paperweight vase is matching , just smaller, being 2.5 inches x 3 inches wide. Both pieces are in original & excellent condition. The larger vase has a flaw that is barely perceptible. A little ways in front of fish is what looks like a burst "bubble". It is completely smooth over this area. If it were an "impact" mark it would have ding on outside, but it is completely smooth. There is a wisp of runny glass that can be seen (if you look very hard) in two places on bottom, but it is, also, internal. It is completely smooth on bottom. I just have to disclose all that I see! This is such a cute set! This is a scarce set, especially with such a Rare, Rare label. This label is the best label from this maker that I have seen. Even ones on ID lists are not this good. These pieces of glass are not as dark as photos. I wish I could photograph glass as well as other people! I am putting them on a BIG sale ($400.xx from Value $750.xx) as they are not perfect! But you do have to look hard for imperfections!
