This is a magnificent 1950's/60's Venetian freeform glass dish, made on the island of Murano
, near Venice, Italy. These bowls are often found with red + gold labels which read "Vetro Artistico Veneziano"
. In a stunning combination of green & opaline white encased glass, with silver leaf
inclusions, golden coloured copper aventurine
and multicoloured mottled/speckled canes. Other bowls with the same style of mottled canes can be found with AVEM labels, see here
. For this reason, it is most likely that this range was made by the AVEM factory, for distribution through Vetro Artistico Veneziano.
Measures approx 3 inches tall by 8.75 inches in diameter at widest point.
Excellent condition, no chips or cracks.
