Description

Here is an exquisite 1950's Venetian green glass bowl with a controlled bubble effect known as Bullicante encased in the glass. Made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy, by famous manufacturers Venini, designed by Carlo Scarpa. The bowl bears their three line circular acid stamp manufacturing mark to the base, which reads: "Venini, Italy, Murano". However I'm afraid it is virtually impossible to make out. I've had several of these bowls in the past, and the acid marks are almost always difficult to see, but this one has to me the most difficult one yet. At a casual glance, nothing can be seen, and even if you get the lighting and angle just right, all that can be seen is the "ano" at the end of Murano on the bottom line, and if you are really lucky, "ly" from Italy on the middle line. I've tried to show this in the last 2 pictures, but it is even more difficult to capture on camera! For an example of how the mark should look (on a different bowl), please click here. Would make an excellent display piece.

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