    Default Needing Help Identifying the Artistof my glass

    I recently had a house fire and am trying to put together a detailed inventory for my insurance company. I purchase a glass inkwell and pen set in Venice the summer of 1999. This piece never had a sticker label on it, but it does have a signature on the bottom. I do not remember the name of the tiny glass store but I do remember that the lady said that he (the artist) had just made the piece the day before.

    If anyone has any suggestions of who the artist may be and where I may be able to come up with a value. I paid between $300-$350 in 1999. Thanks for any information you can provide. I have also attached some pictures.

    Wow. Sorry to hear about a house fire. Hope everyone made it out OK. Regarding the signature, does it say A. Boso Co ? The name doesn't ring a bell, but I just want to make sure that I'm reading this correctly.

    Hi Charlie,
    Thanks for responding. The signature is difficult for me to read as well. We think it says Bosco but not sure what the last letter following the signature is. I just saw you had responded to me back in March. As you can imagine it has been a hectic year, especially since I gave birth to my son 3 weeks after our house burned down. This piece looked like nothing else I found in Venice. Which is why I think I am having trouble finding the artist. It is crazy everything you have to do to get your insurance to pay you for your contents. Any other suggestions? Thanks so much for your help!
