Description

Here is a wonderful Venetian glass miniature vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Decorated with alternating stripes of white criss-cross latticino/zanfirico strands trimmed in copper Aventurine, and pink and yellow ribbon filigree. Attributed to Salviati, unmarked. Similar items can be seen in the book "Italian Glass Century 20" by Leslie Pina, page 55.

Please note:  Although this vase is obviously too small to hold a bunch of flowers, it is still classed as a vase.  Small vases like this were often used to hold flowerheads, or miniature "sweetpea" flowers, or simply used as decorative ornaments.

Size

Measures approx 2.5 inches tall by 1.75 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks.
