A Venetian organic glass sculpture bowl, made on the island of Murano
, near Venice, Italy. Most likely made by the Cristallo Venezia CCC
glassworks. Very similar pieces with the same star shaped base can be found online with labels that read "Cristallo Venezia, CCC"
. To see some labelled examples, please see my Pinterest board here
. In a stunning combination of green glass cased in amber glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian sommerso
technique. Still bears the original generic Murano glass label (worn).
Measures approx 5.25 inches tall by 9.25 inches in diameter at widest point.
Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a couple of tiny nicks to the base edge, shown in final picture.
