Description

Here is a wonderful 1950/60's Venetian glass swan sculpture, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy.  In a stunning combination of green glass encased in lilac / smoky pale blue neodymium glass, using the renowned Venetian sommerso technique. neodymium glass (also known as alexandrite glass), changes colour according to different lighting conditions. It appears lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smoky blue in fluorescent/white light (see pictures)! This is due to the presence of neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass.

Size

Measures approx 8 inches tall by 4 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition
