Description

Here is a magnificent large 1950/60's Murano style Spanish freeform lilac / blue glass flower shaped sculpture bowl with red and white speckles encased in the glass. Made from neodymium glass (also known as alexandrite glass), which 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.

Made by Viartec THF. Multiple examples from this range can be found online with labels that read "Viartec Hand Made in Spain".

Size

Measures approx 8.25 inches tall by 6.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a couple of small nicks to the base rim, shown in final picture.
