Description
A Venetian organic glass basket shaped vase or bowl, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Made in the style of Flavio Poli's sommerso glassware for Seguso Vetri d'Arte, which has since been duplicated by several other well known manufacturers including Mandruzzato, Formia and Luigi Onesto. In a stunning combination of blue glass cased in green glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique.

Size
Measures approx 7.5 inches tall by 7.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition
Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a couple of tiny nicks to the base rim, shown in final picture. To be extremely fussy, the piece is not perfectly symmetrical, as one side of the "handle" is more curved than the other (see pictures).
