Description

This is a magnificent 1950/60's Venetian glass geode bowl, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This bowl was made by Archimede Seguso, and still bears the Archimede Seguso factory label to the base, very worn, but normally reads "Made by Seguso Archimede, Mercerie S-Zulian, Seguso Glass". In a stunning combination of pink glass encased in pale blue or lilac glass, using the renowned Venetian sommerso technique. The outer casing is made in 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.

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

Size

Measures approx 1.5 inches tall by 3 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Has a couple of nibbles to the rim, shown in final pictures.
