Description

Here is a wonderful chunky, and very heavy (2.5kg unpacked), part textured Venetian glass vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy, by the Mandruzzato glassworks. In a stunning combination of blue glass cased in a band of amber glass, followed by a band of paler blue glass, which is further encased in an angular block of clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique.

Size

Measures approx 6.5 inches tall by 7 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a few small faint surface scratches, shown in final picture. Please note, in order to show these on camera, I had to catch them in a bright light reflection, which makes them look much worse than they actually are. Under normal conditions they are virtually invisible.
