Description
Here is a wonderful Venetian glass bowl/ashtray, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This style of glassware is usually attributed to Mandruzzato, although other manufacturers have made similar items, including Oball, Campanella and V. Nason. In a stunning combination of brown glass cased in a band of amber glass, which is further encased in an angular block of clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso technique. This bowl bears two labels, one most likely being from the glass factory and the other probably a retailer label. The first reads "V. A. M. Vetri Molati, Made in Murano" and the other reads "AM, Artigianato Muranese, Quality Trade Mark".
