Description

Here is a wonderful 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.

Size

Measures approx 3.25 inches tall by 4 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a couple of small nicks to the inside rim, shown in final pictures. Please note, the corners of the facets are rounded rather than pointed, but they all match and have a highly polished finish - I believe this is how the piece was made, rather than it being the result of restoration.
