Value feedbackClyde Conner
I have three glass cypress trees ranging from 21"-24". Hand blown in collaboration with Lino Tagliapietra and Dale Chihuly.
I purchased them from the artist directly in 1991. Each is etched and signed: 'Italo Scanga' '91
gorgeous and rare glass pieces, natural colored and infused with gold flake.
I am inquiring about value. I have seen a couple over the last twenty years available only in one gallery and a museum.
They hold sentimental value as Italo was a friend of mine.
They really are beautiful centerpieces to any art collection and truly reflect his love of his homeland Italy.
In addition to an iconic hand signed color screen of a Tuscan landscape, '2 trees' (5/50) in artists hand made and stained frame- which complements the glass pieces nicely.
