Here is a wonderful Venetian glass bowl, 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 green glass cased in a band of amber glass, which is further encased in an angular block of clear glass, using the renowned Venetian sommerso technique. Still bears the original Murano label, which reads "Cristal V. M. P. Made in Murano".


Measures approx 2.25 inches tall by 3 inches in diameter at widest point.


Has a small nick to one bottom corner, a couple of minute fleabites to the inside rim, and a slightly bevelled, polished side edge which could possibly be the result of restoration (tiny chips ground out) or could just be the way it was made at the factory. All shown in final pictures.
