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 green 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.

Measures approx 5.25 inches tall by 1.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

One side corner has a tiny nick and small fracture, another side corner has 2 very faint, tiny "splits" in the glass, probably manufacturing flaws. All shon in final pictures.
