Description

Here is a wonderful 1950/60's Venetian glass 'Geode' bowl/dish, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This piece was probably made by Archimede Seguso or possibly Cenedese. Very similar items by these makers are shown in the book Italian Glass: Century 20 by Leslie Pina. In a stunning combination of amber glass encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. A fabulous item, in a wonderful geode shape, it catches the light beautifully. Would make an excellent display piece.

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