Ercole Barovier and Carlo Scarpa roughly double their estimates

The keen interest continued on the third day of the auction. Over 60% of the lots were sold - often with large price jumps.

Most of the high hammer prices and price increases were seen in works by Ercole Barovier, led by his 'Sidone' vase from 1957, which was sold for € 16,000 after having been called up at € 7,300. An 'A spina' vase from 1958 climbed from € 3,000 to € 5,700, a 'Diamantati' from 1968 from € 1,500 to € 5,000, a 'Mugnoni' vase from 1938 from € 2,000 to 3,500, one 'Barbarico' vase from the year 1951 from € 900 to € 3,100 and an 'Intarsio' vase from € 900 to € 3,400.

The results of the Venini manufactory were led by Carlo Scarpa's 'Sommerso a bollicine' vase. Here, bidding started at € 5,000 and the hammer fell at € 11,000. Fulvio Bianconi provided the design for the 'A fasce di colore' vase that was sold at € 6,000.

Archimede Seguso was once again highly popular. His rare 'Nero d'oro' vase from 1951 climbed from € 6,000 to € 8,500. There was also great interest in Anzolo Fuga's 'Con fasce e murrine' from 1956, which, having been called up at € 1,800, received € 6,100.
