    Default Cenedese Antonio Da Ros Sculpture!

    Hi,
    I bought this beautiful Antonio Da Ros design from Design and Arts last week.
    It has the usual blue/silver foil label with Cenedese signature to the base. It is 16 inches high/45cm.
    I know as often mentioned there are many mysteries with Cenedese.
    It was sold as an Antonio Da Ros 1970's design from old stock that the Design and Arts bought from the old warehouse and are now selling. But they also informed me that they sold an identical one apart from shorter horns and a different colour with the Barbini signature!
    Does anyone have any ideas about this?

    Thanks

    Dave B

    Its entirely possible that 2 companies have made the same or very similar products. Don't forget the island and glass community is very small and ideas and people flow from one company to another rapidly, so its plausible.

    Default Cenedese Stienbock da Ros Sculpture

    Hi Charlie,
    Thanks for replying. The design-and-arts owners thought the design was by da Ros and the base possibly Barbini! And came from old stock. Love to know what the other colour was and how many made?
    The photos really don't do it justice. I've put up better photos in the album.
    Maybe if i write to Cenedese i will get a reply-here's hoping.

    Dave, I am glad it is signed. I have a picture of a deer pair that have legs similar that were made by Salviati. I can't show the picture because it isn't mine. Your picture would be great for the Murano Zoo. If you would like to put your sculpture in the zoo, just email me your full name so I can give you credit.

    Here's a deer pair sculpture that has similar legs and is attributed to Barbini. http://www.antiquehelper.com/item/314158 There is no label or signature, however, so I do not know if the attribution is correct. It is an interesting and colorful sculpture, though.

    Hi Anita,

    Just to say thanks for allowing the Steinbock and swan to retire in your zoo. Please keep them well watered and fed!!

    Nice thing about the zoo is the animals require so little care. And there's no poop to clean up.
