Quittenbaum is having an auction on 2/12/07 with a limited but important selection of Murano Glass. A great opportunity to bid, window shop, or research!
Some great glass by Fulvio Bianconi, Dino Martins, Carlo Scarpa and Archimede Seguso!
Check it out:)

Heres a link to the auction this year, I forgot about it, but the hammer prices have been listed along with pictures of the items. Looks like there was a lot of Fratelli Toso and Venini this year.

I recieved a flyer in the mail today, while not a Murano Glass Auction, Green Valley Auctions (www.greenvalleyauctions.com) is having an auction on 5/16- 5/17. Up for bid is primarily American Glass, including Kerosene Period Lighting, and a bit of European Glass to round out the selection. Visit the site for more information, you are bound to find something of interest! Have fun.:)

Another post in this thread, on October 18, 2008, there will be a Eurpoean Glass & Studio Glass Auction, with a selection of high end Murano glass up on the block. A quick review of the 1000+ lot catalog reveals a lot of Venini, some Scarpa, Ercole Barovier, Fratelli Toso, Dino Martens and others. Worth a look if just to window shop.http://www.auctions-fischer.de/auctions/auctions.php

On January 20th, Quittenbaum is having another auction featuring Murano Glass. Their catalog is online here, and is great for browsing. There are some deals to be had, I was surprised by the low starting price for a Dino Martins vase. Good luck!

A lot of nice glass! The prices seem pretty reasonable, too.
I saw a bianco nero seated horse with saddle attributed to Fratelli Toso on the auction list. I thought all of these types of pieces were done by Archimede Seguso. I wonder if FT also did some of the pieces or if the FT attribution is wrong. This makes me wonder if a ram I have is actually an FT piece, instead of an AS. (I really like labels and signatures. They eliminate all the guesswork!)
