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 purple glass cased in a band of uranium yellow green glass, which is further encased in an angular block of clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. Glows bright green in UV light! A fabulous item, in a wonderful faceted, geometric shape, it catches the light beautifully. Would make an excellent display piece.

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a couple of nicks + scuffs to one base corner, and 3 minute fleabites along one side edge, all shown in final pictures.
