Product Number: WS11019

 Sold / Reference 

Description
This is a stunning sculptural glass dolphin.  Italian/Murano in origin, and still bears the original label which reads "Tino Luvie, Cristalli E Ceramiche D'Arte".  Made in very unusual and quite rare Neodymium glass (also known as Alexandrite glass), which changes colour according to different lighting conditions!!  The vase appears lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smokey blue in flourescent/white light (see pictures)!   This is due to the presence of Neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass.

Size
Measures approx 4 inches tall by 6 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition
No chips or cracks other than a really minute fleabite to the tip of the tail, shown in final picture, and a couple of minor surface scratches.
