Description

A magnificent Venetian glass bottle vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Attributed to Seguso Vetri d'Arte, and most likely designed by Mario Pinzoni. In a stunning combination of amber glass encased in green glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. May originally have had a matching stopper at some point, but if so this was purely decorative, as there is no grinding to the inside rim to give a tight seal. The small amounts of Uranium in the glass cause this vase to glow green in UV light.

Size

Measures approx 11.5 inches tall by 4 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a few small superficial surface scratches, mentioned for accuracy.
