Description

Here is a one off, rare item that you will likely never see again! A large and very heavy (2.5kg unpacked) 1950's Venetian glass sculptural slab, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This piece was made by Galliano Ferro, and still bears the original factory label. In a stunning combination of large multicoloured millefiori canes, twisted white zanfirico filigree and coloured ribbons, and silver leaf inclusions, all on a red core and encased in a thick lilac glass slab.

I'm reliably informed that this iconic item was originally on the door of a town hall in Bradford, England, in the 1950's, either as a large ornate door handle, or decorative ornament. At some point after it was removed, it has had a wooden base added in order to display it better.

Size

Measures approx 3 inches tall by 9 inches in diameter at widest point. The thickness of the glass is 1.25 inches not counting the wooden base.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a few minor surface scratches, shown in final picture.
