Description

Here is an exquisite 1950/60's Venetian glass mini vase or match holder, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This piece was made by AVEM (Arte Vetraria Muranese), part of their "Bizantino" series (commonly referred to by collectors as "tutti-frutti") which was introduced in 1953. Similar items are shown in the book "AVEM, Arte Vetraria Muranese, Artistic Production 1932 - 1972" by Marc Heiremans (pages 106-109, 209, 218 and 222). Decorated with silver leaf, white zanfirico lattice filigree, twisted ribbon canes, and copper aventurine. All of this is surrounded with an inner casing of red glass, and an outer clear glass casing.

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

Size

Measures approx 2.5 inches tall by 2.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

No chips or cracks, just a few manufacturing flaw lines, common with these small vases, see photos.
