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.

Condition

Has a tiny fracture or flaw in the lower part of the "handle" where it joins the main body of the vase, and some internal water staining from use, all shown in final pictures.
