Description

Here is a beautiful Venetian glass candlestick holder made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Made by Cenedese, signed to base. In a stunning combination of black (or extremely dark green, not completely sure) glass encased in Neodymium glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. Neodymium glass (also known as Alexandrite glass), changes colour according to different lighting conditions!! It appears clear with a very slight tint of lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smoky green in fluorescent/white light (see pictures)! This is due to the presence of Neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass. A fabulous item, in a wonderful shape, it catches the light beautifully. Would make an excellent display piece.

Size

Measures approx 4.25 inches tall by 3.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks.
