Delmo and Debbie Tarsitano


PW3052. Adelmo (Delmo) Tarsitano (1921-1990) and probably his daughter, Debbie, Magnum Museum Piece. Four blossoms and a butterfly. From his “Earth Life” series. Please take a close look at the butterfly – stunning! The whole weight is a beauty. Paperweight expert Paul Dunlop wrote: “With his Earth Life series, as fine as any weights made in the twentieth century, Tarsitano established himself as a major artist.”  “DT” cane (used from 1980 until his death in 1990) in the ground. I suspect that Delmo’s extremely talented daughter, Debbie, made the flowers and perhaps the butterfly. They often worked together and they used the same signature cane. 3 3/8 inches diameter; 2 1/2 inches tall; one pound and eight ounces. Condition is perfect/like new.   $1850

PW2561. Adelmo (Delmo) Tarsitano (1921-1990) Museum Piece. Delmo made some of the most delicious strawberry weights ever made, and this is a nice one with one ripe and one unripe strawberry, although they both look amazing. Delmo mastered the various stages of strawberry ripeness and of the modern versions are most like the old Baccarats in style. He did an excellent job of keeping the lampwork three dimensional. “DT” cane in the style he used from around 1980 to the end of his work. 2 3/4 inch diameter; 1 15/16 inches tall; twelve ounces. Condition is excellent.   $750

  
 
 
 

PW1306. Adelmo (Delmo) Tarsitano (1921-1990) Magnum Museum Piece. From his “Earth Life” series. A coiled tan and brown snake stares down a fly that will soon be his dinner - marvelous accuracy and realistic drama. Delmo employed his unique red-glowing spider web technique for the ground beneath the amazingly realistic fly – the effect is as if the ground is glowing red. The rest of the ground is naturalistic mossy-sandy. Paperweight expert Paul Dunlop wrote: “With his Earth Life series, as fine as any weights made in the twentieth century, Tarsitano established himself as a major artist.” “DT” cane (used from 1980 until his death in 1990) in the ground. Provenance is the fabulous Labow/Seacat Collection (Lot 192) which sold at auction on May 21, 2010, and before that Leo Kaplan 1987. 3 1/2 inches diameter; 2 5/16 inches tall; one pound and eight ounces. Condition is perfect/like new.   $1950
