The firm Barovier Seguso and Ferro was established in 1933 and then reorganized to become Seguso Vetri d'arte in 1937. Flavio Poli was it's Artistic Director as of 1934. During the mid 30's, the company created a variety of graceful sculptures that included many of the elements in this large, beautiful piece. To illustrate, a picture is included of some of the company's furnace drawings and objects. Note the leaping animals in a similar pose, the abstracted cacti/vegetation to support the main figures and the thin, rounded support base for some objects. These shared characteristics point to this horse being from the firm, along with the super high quality of glassworking.

The execution of the piece is superb; a hollow blown mottled red glass horse with gold foil, supported by a dark purple/black cactus. The sculpture is dynamic and dramatic. Condition is excellent, with no visible chips or cracks. Many years ago the piece had suffered a break on the base that was expertly and invisibly repaired. I cannot see any sign of damage or the repair. There is a round piece of cork adhered to the bottom to support the piece on its base (applied by the restorer to safeguard against possible future damage).
This is a rare and important art piece that exemplifies Murano's golden age.
