Description

A stunning large and heavy Scandinavian full lead crystal grey + clear glass fish sculpture. Made by FM Konstglas (which later became Marcolin Art Crystal) of Ronneby, Sweden. Signed to base "FM, Ronneby, Sweden". The feathered bubble effect is usually referred to as "Sfumato", which in glass terms means a gradual change of shade, however it has recently been discovered that the correct term would be "Fumato", which means "smoked", a technique which involves exposing the glass to smoke from a fire, to give the glass a smoky colour by picking up particles of unburnt ember and ash from the smoke. This has been confirmed on a Swedish glass forum [here], where a glassblower who worked for FM Konstglas/Marcolin, described the technique they used, involving smoke, to create this effect.

Size

Measures approx 7.25 inches tall by 3 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks. Please note: the tiny holes in the base are not damage or defects - the design inside the glass is made up of lots of small bubbles - the holes in the base are just where the bubbles were present when the base was ground flat, and is perfectly normal for this style of glassware.
