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 opaque creamy white glass cased in a band of pale 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. Would make an excellent display piece.

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

Size

Measures approx 1.25 inches tall by 3.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a very slight bevelling to the outside rim, which may be the result of very minor restoration, possibly done at the factory. Shown in final picture.
