About

Italian glass 'Scavo' vase by Alfredo Barbini, Murano (circa 1970s). Scavo glass indicates that the glass went through a specific glass finishing technique. A special corrosive chemical is used on the surface of the glass piece to dissolve part of the finish to give it an etched or corroded look. This glass usually has an iron oxide finish. It is in good overall condition. Signed on the base 'Barbino Murano'. About the Artist: Alfredo Barbini, (1912-2007), a glass artist born on the islands of Murano in the lagoon of Venice, Italy, was one of Murano's leading figures of the twentieth century. His parents were members of families which had been prominent in the glassmaking industry on Murano for generations as glassblowers and beadmakers. Barbini began his long career in 1925 at the age of 13, working in the Ferro Toso factory. Following World War II Barbini worked as master glassblower and designer. With financial assistance from the firm of Salviati & C., for whom he produced products, he formed in 1950 his own glass firm, Vetreria Alfredo Barbini. His firm exhibited his work at the Venice Biennales from 1950 to 1961. He died in 2007 (ref: Wikipedia). Dimensions: H 10.5 cm / 4.1" W 20.5 cm / 8.1" D 11 cm / 4.3".
