Description

Here is a wonderful heavy 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 deep amber glass cased in a band of paler amber 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. Would make an excellent display piece.

Size

Measures approx 2.5 inches tall by 5.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a couple of minute pinprick sized fleabites to the rim, shown in final pictures.
