Description

Here is a wonderful Venetian glass miniature vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Decorated with alternating stripes of white Zanfirico lattice filigree, and blue twisted ribbons, trimmed with fine Copper Aventurine.

Please note:  Although this vase is obviously too small to hold a bunch of flowers, it is still classed as a vase.  Small vases like this were often used to hold flowerheads, or miniature "sweetpea" flowers, or simply used as decorative ornaments.

Size

Measures approx 4.5 inches tall by 2.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Has a minute fracture to one of the applied clear glass handles, shown dead centre of final picture.
