Description

A magnificent large and heavy (2.2 kilos unpacked) Venetian organic 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 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 rare find in such a large size, this would make the perfect centrepiece of any Murano / Sommerso glassware collection!
