Description

Here is a wonderful chunky & heavy (1.5 kilos unpacked) 1950/60's Venetian glass bowl, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This piece was made by Galliano Ferro, and brought into the UK by British importers Jaffe Rose. Made in red glass cased in very unusual and quite rare Neodymium glass (also known as Alexandrite glass), which changes colour according to different lighting conditions!! It appears lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smokey blue in fluorescent/white light (see pictures)! This is due to the presence of Neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass. Also has a controlled bubble effect known as Bullicante.

Please note: the plastic stand is for display purposes only and is not included.
