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 green glass cased in a band of amber glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique.

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

Size

Measures approx 1.75 inches tall by 4.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Has a few minute fleabites to the inside rim, a small scratch to the outside rim, and a dimpled section along one outside edge of the rim, which looks to me like a manufacturing flaw rather than restoration, as it is very smooth and shiny. All shown in final pictures.
