The glass is made up of thousands of tiny air bubbles to give a frothy effect, known as the Pulegoso technique, made popular by Venini in the 1930's, and also used by other Murano factories including Archimede Seguso and Seguso Vetri d'Arte.

Size

Measures approx 1.75 inches tall by 8.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a couple of small black specks in the glass near the rim, from the manufacturing process, shown in final picture.
