Description

Here is a wonderful 1950/60's Venetian freeform glass bowl/ashtray, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This piece was made by Barovier & Toso, and possibly designed by the renowned Italian designer Ercole Barovier. I believe this piece is from the 'Cordonato d'Oro' range. Very similar pieces can be seen in the book 'Italian Glass' by Leslie Pina, pages 31 - 32. Made in clear + red glass with loads of gold leaf inclusions encased in the glass.

Size

Measures approx 1.75 inches tall by 3.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a couple of tiny surface scratches to the rim.
