A huge, very heavy (2.6 kilos unpacked) Venetian organic glass sculpture bowl, made on the island of Murano
, near Venice, Italy. Most likely made by the Cristallo Venezia CCC
glassworks. Very similar pieces with the same star shaped base can be found online with labels that read "Cristallo Venezia, CCC"
. To see some labelled examples, please see my Pinterest board here
. In a stunning combination of green glass cased in amber glass, which is further encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian sommerso
Measures approx 5.25 inches tall by 21.5 inches in diameter at widest point.
No chips or cracks other than a tiny nick to the base rim, and a couple of small scuff marks to the top rim, all shown in final pictures.
