Description
Here is a wonderful chunky, heavy, part textured Venetian glass vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This style of glassware is usually attributed to Mandruzzato or Campanella, who have both made glass in this style. In a stunning combination of purple glass cased in a band of blue glass, followed by a band of yellow green glass, which is further encased in an angular block of clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. The yellow green layer contains small amounts of Uranium in the glass, causing the vase to glow bright green in UV light, a feature which has become very collectable these days.

Please note: Someone has added small clear rubber "feet" to the four corners of the base, to protect it from age wear. I have left these in place rather than try to remove them.
