Crystal Organic - Blue Sommerso Spiral "Contour" Line Art Bowl

An organic shaped bowl in an excellent conditon.

Here I have a beautiful piece of art glass, most likely crystal given its clarity, to which the maker is unknown. It has similarities to both quality Italian and Scandinavian glasshouses, so I list it accordingly. It very much has the effect of contours on a map, although the blue trail is one continuous piece of glass.

The bowl is very organic in form, roughly triangular in shape, and turned over at top corners creating a little overhang. The actual word sommerso means "submerged" as a description of the glass in the way it is made. It is easy to tell if the glass is sommerso: it has clear glass surrounding the colored portion of the class. This bowl starts with the blue glass trail on the outer surface, and as it spirals around the circumference of bowl it becomes completely submerged, until at the top rim it is a blue wisp encased/submerged within the clear. I hope my pictures below do it justice.

In an excellent conditon, no chips or cracks, a couple of tiny scrapes on bowl, only felt not seen, so it displays beautifully.

Measures approx. 25cm at longest by 12.5cm at widest and 7.5cm tallest, on an oval base of 5cm at longest, weight is 0.833kg unpacked.
