Description

Here is a wonderful large Venetian glass vase, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Several Murano factories have made sommerso glassware in this faceted style, including Mandruzzato, Bucella Cristalli, Campanella, Oball, and V. Nason. Like with most sommerso glass, many inexperienced or untrustworthy sellers would attribute this to a Flavio Poli design for Seguso Vetri d'Arte, but there is no evidence that SVA ever made these (none shown in their factory catalogues, and none found with their labels) and plenty of evidence that other factories did. If other sellers that often make this mistake read this, please, fix your descriptions, and stop misleading your buyers. In a stunning combination of turquoise glass cased in a band of amber glass, which is further encased in an angular block of blue glass, using the renowned Venetian sommerso technique.

Size

Measures approx 8.5 inches tall by 2 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a small nick tot he rim and another to the base. Also mentioned for accuracy is some rounding to the corners, which may be the result of restoration, but I suspect the vase was made this way as it is very well done. All shown in final pictures.
