Murano Glass Twisted Sommerso Vase

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Although this is an unsigned piece, it displays some of the most skilled glass blowing talent. The color fades gradually from a dark rich blue at the top to a subtle turquoise at the bottom. The bottom is of course clear glass, with a very organized twist pattern that blends away half way up. It has a polished bottom with scratches commensurate with age and use, possibly Salviati.
