Description

Here is a wonderful 1950/60's Venetian glass 'Geode' bowl/dish, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. These bowls were made by several manufacturers, including Archimede Seguso and Cenedese.  Very similar items by these makers are shown in the book Italian Glass: Century 20 by Leslie Pina.  In a stunning combination of pink glass encased in blue glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. The pink can look more purple due to the layer of blue around it. Still bears the original generic Murano glass label on the base (quite worn).

Please note:  the plastic stand is for display purposes only and is not included.

Size

Measures approx 1.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

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