Trabucco Studio Crystal Buffalo
Today’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a Trabucco Studio buffalo in pure crystal mounted on a marble block. Our piece is signed “Trabucco 1980” and is part of a line still being offered today. According to their website, “The elegant works of Crystal by Trabucco Studio bear testimony to the fact that they are among the most outstanding and creative glass artists in the world today. Their works occupy prominent places in the most distinguished collections of Heads of State, Professional Athletes, Major Corporations, and Stars of stage and screen. Trabucco sculptures are made of solid crystal; no forms or molds are used. The technique is entirely free hand consisting of sensitive and meticulous manipulation of molten glass.” We also have a buffalo head mounted on a marble block, dated 1989.
Trabucco Studio was founded in 1974 by Victor Trabucco, eventually joined by his sons, David and Jon. World-renowned for their paperweights, their sculptures are also highly prized today and it is easy to see why.
