Description

Here is a wonderful large and very heavy (1.5 kilos unpacked) Venetian glass bowl, 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 Nason. In a stunning combination of blue glass cased in a band of amber glass, which is further encased in an angular block of clear 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.

Please note: the plastic stand is for display purposes only and is not included.

Size

Measures approx 2.5 inches tall by 6 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

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