SPECTACULAR MID CENTURY MODERN ITALIAN
MURANO GEODE ART GLASS BOWL!
Presenting a fabulous vintage Italian Murano triple
layer cased Sommerso art glass Geode bowl.
This exquisite piece has a beautifully rounded clean-lined
modernist form and an appealing cased colour combination!
A gorgeous layer of rich olive green glass appears to
the centre of the bowl and is encased within a layer of
vibrant blue glass which creates a fabulous halo effect
around the central olive green colour. These layers are
encased within the thick solid crystal clear glass form.
The central olive green colour appears to change
in varying lighting conditions, alternating between a honey
amber yellow and deep dark near khaki green depending
on the light and the colour cast from the blue casing.
The exquisite colours radiate throughout the beautifully
curved form reflecting off one another to create magical
colour combinations. The thick glass acts as a lens spectacularly
magnifying and distorting the light and colours encased within.
The magnificent blue colour becomes electrified with a
magical intensity as it reflects off the stunning thick glass rim.
This striking piece has been expertly hand crafted and very well
finished by a master Italian glass artist circa 1950s. This piece has a polished
flat ground base, a sure sign of a quality hand crafted vintage piece.
This fabulous Murano art glass Geode bowl is presented
in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. There is the
tiniest absolutely minuscule sized nibble to the outer rim of the glass,
noticeable only on extremely close inspection in bright raking light but
mentioned for complete accuracy. Most people would not even notice
this and it could be easily polished out. There are sufficient surface
scratches to the polished base, consistent with a piece of this vintage
being placed on a shelf and a sure sign of a genuine vintage example. This
piece has been exceptionally well cared for and presents spectacularly.
This most impressive Murano Geode bowl stands
approx 47mms tall and measures 108mms in width.
A magnificent addition to any quality
vintage Italian Murano art glass collection!
A fabulous feature for any modernist, eames or retro
styled home and a perfect gift idea for the admirer of fine quality,
hand crafted and artistically designed, unique vintage objects.
