Description

A 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 blue glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique.

The vase has some numbers etched onto the base (see pic) but I have no idea what they mean or if they have been added later for some reason. Not visible when on display.

Size

Measures approx 4.5 inches tall by 2.75 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a couple of tiny fleabites to the base rim, shown in final pictures, and couple of small surface scratches.
