Description

Here is a wonderful large and heavy (1.9 kilos unpacked) Venetian glass sculpture vase / bowl, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy.  Made by Arte Nuova in the 1950's/60's, unmarked.  Examples from this range can be found online, sometimes baring labels which read "Arte Nuova Murano, Grand Prize, Genuine Venetian Glass, World Fair Brussels 1958". Other examples have a label which reads "Arte Nuova Murano, Pustetto & Zanetti, Made in Italy".  The factory was open only for a relatively short time, from 1954 to 1965. In a stunning combination of pink glass encased in Uranium yellow glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the Venetian developed Sommerso technique. Glows bright green in UV light.

Size

Measures approx 12 inches tall by 6.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Has a tiny fracture to the very top where the two pulled parts meet, see final pictures. Almost looks like it was made that way, as it is right where the two parts join. Barely noticeable and should not cause any problems at all. Other than that the piece is in pristine condition, no chips or other damage.
