Description

This is a magnificent Venetian lilac / smoky blue glass cat, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Made by V. Nason & C., signed to base, and still bears the original factory label. Made 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 smoky blue in fluorescent/white light (see pictures)! This is due to the presence of Neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass.  

Size

Measures approx 3 inches tall by 2.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks.
