Murano Faceted Brown & Amber Sommerso Glass Block Lighter

Product Number: WS14810

 Sold / Reference 

Description

Here is a wonderful Venetian glass lighter, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. In a stunning combination of reddish brown glass cased in a band of amber glass, which is further encased in an angular block of clear glass, using the renowned Venetian sommerso technique.

Several Murano factories have made sommerso glassware in this faceted style, including Mandruzzato, Bucella Cristalli, Campanella, Oball, and V. Nason. Like with most sommerso glass, many inexperienced or untrustworthy sellers would attribute this to a Flavio Poli design for Seguso Vetri d'Arte, but there is no evidence that SVA ever made these (none shown in their factory catalogues, and none found with their labels) and plenty of evidence that other factories did. If other sellers that often make this mistake read this, please, fix your descriptions, and stop misleading your buyers.

Size

Measures approx 3.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Has one small fleabite nick to one edge. There is also some glue residue around the edge of the metal lighter fitting, all shown in final pictures.

Please note - I'm selling this as not working / decorative only. It was described as "flint missing" when I bought it, and I'm not a smoker so I have no way to test it or know if it can be made usable again.
