Description

Here is a wonderful Venetian 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 blue glass cased in Uranium yellow green glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. The small amounts of Uranium in the glass cause this vase to glow a brilliant bright green in UV light. A fabulous item, in a wonderful organic shape, it catches the light beautifully. Would make an excellent display piece.

Size

Measures approx 6.5 inches tall by 3.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a manufacturing flaw/fold in the rim, shown in final picture.
