Description

Here is a wonderful Venetian freeform glass vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Made in the style of Flavio Poli's sommerso glassware for Seguso Vetri d'Arte, which has since been duplicated by several other well known manufacturers including Mandruzzato, Formia and Luigi Onesto. In a stunning combination of purple glass cased in blue glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. A fabulous item, in a wonderful organic shape, it catches the light beautifully. Would make an excellent display piece.

Size

Measures approx 7 inches tall by 3.75 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a tiny nick half way up the handle, shown in final picture. Also the vase has an intentional lop-sided curved shape, see pics.
