Rare designs in the focus of collectors - Quittenbaum starts the sales year with a successful Murano glass auction

Following the 'Italian Design' auction, 196 selected glass objects from Muranese manufacturers were on offer on Tuesday. Large and exceptional forms were particularly appreciated by collectors. The 'Incamiciato' bowl by Napoleone Martinuzzi dates from the early years of the Zecchin-Martinuzzi company. The coveted object in delicate rosé was sold after a considerable price increase from €3,000 to €16,000. The starting price of the spherical vase 'Mugnoni' by S.A.I.A.R. Ferro Toso doubled its price to €13,000 thanks to eager bidders. The list of results is headed by Fulvio Bianconi's 'A fasce di colore' vase. The model with fused high-contrast ribbons in yellow and blue goes into a private collection for €19,000.

You can still purchase unsold objects as part of our after sale until March 25, 2022.
