Murano/Sommerso Faceted Uranium Glass Block Vase

Product Number: WS08304

 Sold / Reference 

Description

Here is a wonderful Venetian glass vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. 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. In a stunning combination of green glass cased in a band of uranium yellow green glass, which is further encased in an angular block of blue glass, using the renowned Venetian sommerso technique. Glows bright green in UV light!

Size

Measures approx 6 inches tall by 1.75 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Has a couple of nibbles to the top rim, and the corners of the base rim are all slightly rounded and polished (the latter probably done at the factory). All shown in final pictures.
