Description

Here is a wonderful 1950/60's 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 green glass encased in a band of amber 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 8.25 inches tall by 3.75 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a really tiny manufacturing "dimple" on the tip of the pulled out rim, shown in final picture.
