Vintage Big, Tall and Heavy Murano Vase in Green and Orange "Sommerso" Glass

About the Item

Many are the different types of glass created by master makers on the Venetian island of Murano. From air-thin vases to expressive sculptures, also massive objects with deep and vivid hues of colour represent the great skills of glassmakers. The present bowl, designed in the style of Flavio Poli, yet not directly attributed to him, is a perfect example of how attractive massive Murano glass can be. Made in "Sommerso" glass, in shades of green and deep orange, it has a round, bulb shape. It can be dated approximately to the mid 1960s, based on the style and colors of the piece. Unsigned, as most pieces of that era, it shows great craftsmanship, and is preserved in beautiful conditions. No cracks, dents or damages of sort are visible, and just a light patina proves it is actually a 50 years old object.

  • Vintage Fluid and Massive Murano Sculpture in "Sommerso" Clear and Green Glass
    Located in Milano, IT
    Very big and heavy Murano vase in "Sommerso" glass. The peculiar technique, translating to "submerged", consists in joining two layers of different colours glass, so that one looks to be absorbed by the other. In this case, the two colours are green for the core and clear/crystal for the outer layer. The piece is fluid, and is an abstract sculpture in its own right beside being an actual vase. It is preserved in very good original conditions, with minor scratches/hairlines and the expectable patina of a four decades old object...
