Description

Here is a wonderful large and heavy (2 kg unpacked) green, blue and clear glass vase with controlled bubble effect. Easily mistaken for Murano glass, indeed some sellers would like you to believe as such, but this beautiful, high quality, impressive piece was actually made in China. This design originally surfaced as a range of vases, bowls and candle holders, with the brand name "Star", by designer Julien Macdonald, and was sold in Debenhams department stores in the UK. In a stunning combination of green and blue glass encased in clear glass, using the Venetian developed Sommerso technique, with applied thick green strapping on the sides. Very high quality, which easily rivals the quality of an Italian piece.

Size

Measures approx 8 inches tall by 5.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a couple of small surface scratches.
