Description
Here is a magnificent 1950/60's Venetian freeform glass sculpture bowl, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. In a stunning combination of red and white speckled glass encased in lilac / smokey blue glass. The outer layer is made in very unusual and quite rare 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 smokey blue in fluorescent/white light (see pictures). This is due to the presence of Neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass.

Size
Measures approx 11 inches tall by 6.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition
Has a few shallow nibbles to the base rim, shown in final pictures.
