A lavish splash of real gold aventurine inclusions floats atop the rich blue colour adding a dazzling sparkle. The combination of rich blue and glistening gold is most attractive. The glistening gold inclusions add a most magical jewel-like sparkle to the expertly formed glass.
This exceptional example has been expertly crafted to create fabulous thick lobes of vertical glass which radiate around the outer surface of the bowl, perfectly contrasting the smooth interior. The thick lobes of glass act like a lens to create spectacular optical effects. Light literally glistens off the thickly ribbed glass, the internal cased blue reflecting off the thick glass with a magical intensity. This piece was designed and produced as a bowl, with no indentations to the top rim to indicate it was ever intended to be a more common ashtray.
This exquisite Murano bowl is presented in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. This piece has been very well cared for and presents spectacularly. This superb piece stands approx 60mms tall and measures approx 145mms in diameter. This substantial piece weighs just over 1.3 kgs unpackaged. This piece has been very well finished with a quality flat ground polished base with sufficient light surface scratches to authenticate this is a genuinely vintage example.
This impressive piece would make a fine addition to any vintage Italian Murano art glass collection!
