Description

Here is a beautiful 1950/60's Venetian glass squirrel sculpture, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy, by Cenedese. Still bears the remains of the original factory label on the base. Made in very unusual and quite rare Neodymium glass (also known as Alexandrite glass), which changes colour according to different lighting conditions!! The squirrel 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. A fabulous item, in a wonderful shape, it catches the light beautifully. Would make an excellent display piece.

Size

Measures approx 6.5 inches tall by 5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks.
