Description

Here is a wonderful chunky 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 turquoise blue glass cased in a band of green glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. The small amounts of Uranium in the green glass cause this bowl to glow bright green in UV light. Also has a "crackle glass" textured finish.

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