 Sold / Reference 


Here is a wonderful Venetian glass vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Made by Arte Nuova in the 1950's/60's. The remains of their factory label are present, but this is very worn and not much can be made out. The full version of the label, which can be found on other pieces from this range, would read "Arte Nuova Murano, Grand Prize, Genuine Venetian Glass, World Fair Brussels 1958". Other examples have a label which reads "Arte Nuova Murano, Pustetto & Zanetti, Made in Italy". The factory was open only for a relatively short time, from 1954 to 1965. In a stunning combination of green glass encased in uranium yellow green glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the Venetian developed sommerso technique. Glows bright green in UV light.


Measures approx 7 inches tall by 3.5 inches in diameter at widest point.


Excellent condition, no chips or cracks.
