Description

Here is an exquisite 1980's Venetian smokey grey glass Vasetti decorative bottle vase, pattern number 100.4. Made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy, by famous manufacturers Venini. Signed to the base "Venini Italia 80", and still bears the original factory label. Shown in the book "Venini Catalogue Raisonne 1921 - 1986", page 287. Would make an excellent display piece.

Please Note - Although it may appear so, this vase is not missing a stopper, there is no wear inside the neck that you would expect if it was meant to have a stopper, and no stoppers are shown in the catalogue pages mentioned above. This has also been confirmed by a very helpful ebayer who purchased one of these at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Size

Measures approx 4.75 inches tall by 2.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a tiny surface scratch to one corner near the base, shown in final picture.
