Description

Here is a wonderful Venetian organic glass vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy.  Most likely made by Arte Nuova in the 1950's/60's, unmarked. Similar examples from this range can be found online, sometimes baring labels which read "Arte Nuova Murano, Grand Prize, Genuine Venetian Glass, World Fair Brussels 1958". Other examples have a label which reads "Arte Nuova Murano, Pustetto & Zanetti, Made in Italy".  The factory was open only for a relatively short time, from 1954 to 1965. In a stunning combination of green glass encased in amber glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the Venetian developed Sommerso technique.
