Description

Here is a wonderful 1950/60's Venetian glass 'Geode' bowl/dish, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. These bowls were made by several manufacturers, including Archimede Seguso and Cenedese. Very similar items by these makers are shown in the book Italian Glass: Century 20 by Leslie Pina. In a stunning combination of purple glass cased in a band of blue glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. A fabulous item, in a wonderful geode shape, it catches the light beautifully.

One of several similar items I currently have listed in my shop (see below).
