Murano Italy Champagne Flutes Frosted Colored Trumpet Glass Archimedes Seguso :
Here is a special set of 4 genuine Murano Italy Frosted Colored Textured Tulip Champagne Flutes that I have had in my possession for several years. Purchased at an estate of a doctor of Italian descent that passed away in Rhode Island. his home was jam packed with high end Italian artwork, marble sculptures and Italian art glass. this set of 4 hand blown glass champagne flutes are amazing quality with only one having a label. the label is a round gold foil 2 toned label with scalloped border. there is a circle inside with "ITALY" at top and "MURANO" at bottom. inside the circle is a "SNIFTER" glass with the letters "A" at left side of glass "G" at top of snifter and "S" at right side of glass. I believe this to be a genuine label for "ARCHIMEDES SEGUSO GLASS". I have searched for other examples of this label but have not been able to find a match to authenticate. the champagne flutes all have a slightly different weight to them, the light blue one is the lightest. the glass is very thin, the design of these champagne flutes is amazing, they are easily held in one hand and you can swirl or turn the glass with your fingers with ease. the form is incredible. the outer glass body as well as the twist stems that have been applied have a very thin textured bubble like texture that can't be seen unless holding very close to the eyes but can be felt. the champagne flutes have a frost color tone. they are nearly translucent but not quite. you get 2 rose shaded red ones one gray colored one and one light blue. they measure 10 5/16" in height approximately with a mouth opening of 2 15/16". the bottom base which is sunken is 2 7/8" across. twist base to bottom of flute is approximately 4 1/4". each flutes weighs approximately 8oz. these mid century modern Murano champagne flutes are circa 1955-1965. I have only seen one other set and it was over 4 years ago. I believe there may have been more colors available. no chips or cracks to flutes, color is exceptional, they do not appear to have ever been used. please view all pics and read full item condition.
