This auction catalogue was published in advance of an auction held on 13 June 2015. Publisher's description: Over 25 years in the making, this collection tells the story of the rebirth of the art-glass industry in the late 19th through 20th centuries. Testament to the vision and dedication of the collectors, this assembly of rare, important and sometimes obscure pieces is exceptional in both quality and scope. Expertly photographed and documented by Wright, the collection features more than 200 works from the most renowned Italian manufacturers and designers, including the greatest collection of Barovier ever to come to market, including early Mosaico and Floreali vases, monumental works of the 1930s and 1940s and rare Tessere Polichrome vases of the 1960s. Works by Carlo Scarpa, Dino Martens, MVM Cappallin, Archimede Seguso, Giorgio Ferro, Thomaso Buzzi, Francesco Ferro e Figlio, Piero Fornasetti, Fratelli Toso, Paolo Venini and others. An invaluable record of this rich and creative time in Italian glass design and production.
