Pictured below is a fine vintage modernist blown glass bowl designed by Carlo Scarpa for Venini & C. The bowl is blown in the corroso technique, and features a thick base, a flaring, irregular rim, and an overall textured surface in thick, clear glass. This is a substantial, weighty little bowl its quality and execution are excellent with clean, modern lines and a brutalist, mid-century modern appeal. It would be a nice addition to any collection of Italian art glass, and would look great in any Danish modern, Eames or Panton inspired setting.
Measurements: The piece measures about 4 1/8 at its widest diameter, and stands about 2 ¾ tall. Condition: The bowl is in good used vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or repairs. Marks: It is signed on bottom with acid etched marks on four lines, venini, murano, MADE IN ITALY.Please see my other auctions for more mid-Century modern design, vintage decorative pieces and jewelry.
