  • Description
    This set of twelve plates, created by the Venetian master glassmaker Archimede Seguso, dates back to 1970. Crafted from transparent Murano glass, each plate is rimmed with gold, showcasing amber reflections along its edges. Archimede Seguso's plates stand out for their generously proportioned circumference, flawlessly executed, and their thick, slightly raised edges, adding a touch of elegance while providing secure support for their contents. These pieces are in excellent condition, a testament to the timeless quality of Seguso's work.
    Archimede Seguso (1909-1999), recognized as the finest master glassmaker of the 20th century, reinvented the ancient art of Murano glass by taking over the family business, thus perpetuating a 650-year-old tradition. Among his innovations are the "lace" glass (1952) and the "feathers" glass (1956), developed by rediscovering the 18th-century filigree technique. The "lace" glass artworks, with their unique beauty, are preserved in the world's most renowned museums.
    Founded centuries ago, the Seguso company, known as Soffieria Barovier Seguso and Ferro, was transformed under the leadership of Archimede Seguso into Seguso Vetri D'Arte. The company is among the oldest glass-making dynasties on the island of Murano, renowned for its visionary designs and unmatched craftsmanship. Today, the 23rd generation of Seguso glassmakers continues their legacy, ensuring the ongoing evolution and preservation of Venetian glassmaking craftsmanship.
