Description

Here is a wonderful Venetian glass vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This style of glassware is usually attributed to Mandruzzato, although other manufacturers have made similar items, including Oball, Campanella and V Nason. In a stunning combination of ruby red glass cased in a band of amber glass, which is further encased in an angular block of blue glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. A fabulous item, in a wonderful faceted, geometric shape, it catches the light beautifully. Would make an excellent display piece.

Size

Measures approx 8 inches tall by 2.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a really minute fleabite to one side edge, shown in final picture.
