Description

This is a magnificent Venetian sculptural grey glass cat, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Made by V. Nason & C., labelled to base. The feathered bubble effect is usually referred to as "sfumato", which in glass terms means a gradual change of shade, however it has recently been discovered that the correct term would be "fumato", which means "smoked", a technique which involves exposing the glass to smoke from a fire, to give the glass a smoky colour by picking up particles of unburnt ember and ash from the smoke. This has been confirmed on a Swedish glass forum [here], where a glassblower who worked for FM Konstglas/Marcolin, described the technique they used, involving smoke, to create this effect.

Please note: the plastic stand is for display purposes only and is not included.

Size

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