    Default Moretti Bottles

    Hi,

    As you all know on the forum I am a Franco Moretti fan. I bought some bottles recently that are out of this world and I thought I would share with everyone on the forum. They are so colorful and will bring a smile to your face.

    They are all scavo and signed by Franco Moretti. All the bigger bottles have a green rim around the top where the stopper goes in. They are the pride and joy of my collection!!!!

    Thanks Cliff, I really enjoyed looking at them last night. I was so pleased when they arrived. The seller stated that the yellow one wasn't signed but it is so yellow that you can barely see the signature. You have to put it in the right light to see it.

    Thanks for the nice comments, you are such a good friend. BTW, I have added an Archimede Seguso leaf dish that is signed by Mario Gambaro in my album today. I hope to add more soon. Just haven't had much time lately to do those kinds of things.

    Tami:

    Great bottles. I love the yellow and and green. Any chance of a close up as I'd like to how the scavo looks on a Moretti piece. I love those solid colours that are just about translucent and so vibrant.

    Thanks David. I am sorry to say that I cannot get any closer due to my camera's capabilities. Yes, it is not that great. At the time when I bought it I really needed the video camcorder and now I just need a really good camera. Maybe for Christmas. I have found another smaller bottle that is in blue so you will get the idea. The scavo is not all that heavy and last night I was looking at them and it looks as if there are tiny little bubbles that have burst all over the bottles on the outside with the light scavo. I have never seen anything like it. I have seen scavo pieces but never like this. They are truely unique. That is what I like about Franco his techiques are one of a kind.

    BTW, in the link to the bottle there is a frosted vase in the last pic it is also a Franco Moretti piece. I so wanted this vase and contacted the seller but the customs charges were just too much to bare so I decided not to bid. Hated it but that is how it goes sometimes.

    Tami:

    Thanks for the reply. I just wondered how the scavo looks compared to Barbini or Cenedese scavo, where the surface looks, well, dirty. On yours the colour looks so pure.

    I saw that vase in the UK, too, and was severely tempted, but I've been very bad recently, way over my budget. At least I'm enjoying the fruits of my badness.

    David,

    I am glad to read you are enjoying yourself. I too have been bad lately. I told myself that I was not going to spend the money on the bottles even though the price was pretty fair but still it was a lot of money to me but that is okay. I find Murano glass prettier to look at than money anyway. LOL! I have to try and be good through Christmas though because the bottles were my Christmas present to myself.

    Yes, I find Franco's scavo more pure as well. He always adds his own spin to glass and sets his own standard. I just wish you could see them in person they are much more dazzling.
