Here is a wonderful Venetian glass bowl, 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 amber glass, which is further encased in an angular block of clear glass, using the renowned Venetian sommerso technique.


Measures approx 2 inches tall by 3.25 inches in diameter at widest point.


No chips or cracks other than a couple of minute fleabites to the inside rim, and slight rounding to a couple of the side edges, which could be the result of professional restoration, or more likely just the way it was made at the factory. Also, there is a small mark inside the glass near one bottom corner, which could be a manufacturing flaw, or at worst a very faint bruise mark or fracture. All shown in final pictures.
