Description

Here is a magnificent large 1950/60's Murano style Spanish freeform lilac / blue glass horn shaped sculpture bowl with red and white speckles encased in the glass. Made from neodymium glass (also known as alexandrite glass), which changes colour according to different lighting conditions.  It appears lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smoky blue in fluorescent/white light (see pictures). This is due to the presence of neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass. The colour change in this piece isn't as strong or as noticeable as others I've had.

Made by Viartec THF. Multiple examples from this range can be found online with labels that read "Viartec Hand Made in Spain".

Size

Measures approx 8.5 inches tall by 15.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just an area of grinding/restoration to the base rim, shown in final picture. Probably done at the factory as this is very commonly found on these sculptures.
