Three Archimede Seguso (Italian, 1909-1999) Covered Bowls, Murano, Italy, c. 1950, in Lattimo, Lace, and Reticello techniques, all with applied gold leaf handles, unmarked, one with label remnants, ht. 3 3/4, 5 3/4, 9 1/2 in.

Note: Seguso was an Italian glass manufacturer known for his intricate glass vases, necklaces, and sculptures. Spanning a wide range of forms and colors, his subject matter included animals and abstract shapes. Seguso notably led a revival of ancient Venetian glass-making techniques, specifically filigrana, which produced lattice-like patterns. Seguso ran the family business Seguso Vetri d'Arte, from 1937 to 1942. The Seguso company continues to produce glass, with works included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
