Here is a wonderful large and very heavy (2 kilos unpacked) Venetian glass vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Made by Arte Nuova in the 1950's/60's, unmarked. Examples from this range can be found online, sometimes baring labels which 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 purple 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 9.75 inches tall by 5 inches in diameter at widest point.


Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a few small, faint surface scratches or tooling marks, shown in final pictures. They are only really visible when the light catches them at the right angle.
