Description

Here is a wonderful 1950/60's Venetian glass bowl, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This piece was made by Galliano Ferro, and brought into the UK by British importers Jaffe Rose. Made in blue glass cased in very unusual and quite rare neodymium glass (also known as alexandrite glass), which changes colour according to different lighting conditions!! It appears lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smoky blue in fluorescent/white light (see pictures)!This is due to the presence of neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass. Also has a controlled bubble effect known as 'bullicante'.

Size

Measures approx 2 inches tall by 3.75 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a few surface scratches.
