Presenting a stunning vintage Italian Murano faceted sommerso art glass bowl produced by Mandruzzato circa 1950s. This stunning example has been spectacularly coloured with three radiant sommerso layers suspended within the ice-blue coloured form which has been exquisitely cut to form faceted geometric faces. Generally the layers of colour are suspended within a clear glass body, so having them suspended in blue coloured glass is exceptionally rare and desirable. Each face of the crystal has been cut to form exquisite geometric faceted sides producing fabulous clean angular lines and beautifully bold, prism faces. The exquisite diamond shaped faces reflect and refract the glowing colours to create a striking kaleidoscope of optical effects.VINTAGE ITALIAN MURANO SOMMERSO GLASS BOWL BY MANDRUZZATO. This piece is presented in as found condition with some slight and minor damage, however it is one of the most spectacular Mandruzzato examples we have had the pleasure to offer so we are certain it will make an outstanding addition to a collection. (Read on for detailed condition report and examine the accurate images). A stunning layer of rich and radiant cobalt blue forms the central core surrounded by a halo of golden yellow, followed by a layer of delicate purple.
The colours are encased within the thick sea blue walls of the vessel, forming magnificent arcs of radiant colour suspended sommerso style within. The thick crystal walls act as a lens, creating exquisite distortions and reflections of light, and magnifying and intensifying the colours within. The exquisite colours radiate throughout the vessel, refracting of the faceted faces spectacularly and combining to form striking colour combinations. SIZE: This impressive piece stands approx 95mms tall and measures 145mms in diameter.
WEIGHT: This substantial piece weighs 1.5kgs unpackaged. CONDITION: This piece is presented in as found condition with one shallow slither of a chip to one of the points surrounding the body. One of the lower faces of the bowl has light and fine surface scratches.It appears the previous owner displayed this piece on an angle, which looks absolutely spectacular but has resulted in fine surface scratches to one of the lower side faces consistent with being placed on a surface as is normally evident upon a base of a vintage example. This piece presented exceptionally well and the minor faults do not detract from its beauty. This stunning piece would make a fine addition to any Mandruzzato, Italian Murano, Sommerso, vintage art glass, retro or mid 20th century design collection! An exquisite feature for any modernist or eames styled home!
