Dino Rosin and his family moved to an island in the Venetian Lagoon known for its glass-making when he was still an infant. By the age of 12, Rosin had left school and joined the local trade, becoming highly regarded for the coloration of his glasswork. Highlighted in the May Exceptional Estates Auction, presented by Blackwell Auctions, is a glass fish sculpture by Dino Rosin from the 1990s. Swirling reds and blues decorate both the fish and its stand. It is signed by the artist.
Representing the United States in this sale is a 1948 baseball-themed poster advertising Chesterfield cigarettes. The advertisement touts Chesterfields as “The Baseball Man’s Cigarette” and backs up the claim with drawings of future Baseball Hall of Fame players Joe DiMaggio and Stan Musial smoking the cigarettes. Ted Williams, the Boston Red Sox left fielder, holds up a pack next to his smiling face. Interested watch collectors can consider a Patek Philippe Art Deco wristwatch in this sale. Four diamonds frame the watch face. The piece is engraved “Mrs. F.M. Ferrim, Newton, Mass.” on the back. Register to bid and view each of the lots on Bidsquare.
