Rare c.1930 FERRO TOSO BAROVIER FTB Murano Art Glass ELEPHANT

Please look at the large photos aboveof theactual item for sale.

This FERRO BAROVIER TOSO Elephant is a rare find. Thank you to a helpful collector

who has examples with original FTB labels.

Recognisable early features:-

White Paste Tusks

Egg Yolk Yellow Murrine Eyes

Separately Blown Glass Legs, Body, Head and Trunk

Ridged backs and furrowed brows to the head.

Great "movement" in the execution that only a master glass

blower can perform.

Ridged Trunk typical of FTB elephants

Now the finish to this elephant is very unusual and very hard

to capture in photos (I have tried hard)

It is "fumed" that is to say slightly iridiscentall over ...

There is also silver leaf, gold leaf and black leaf.

So you see theoxidised gold leaf, silver leaf areas under the glass

and also gold leaf on the surface and through the glass as you

see the gold side of theoxidised goldleaf. Just to add to the mix

some of the oxidised gold leaf has opalised so it appears gold in sunlight.

Size

Good sizeapprox 25cminlength and 16cm tall

Condition

2 areas to mention (please see photos)

(1) Tall has a little damage to end

(2) There is a small annealing fracture in the body

behind the head approx 0.5 inch in length

consistant with an age of approx 80 years!
