Vintage Venetian Italian Glass Sculptures Italy, circa 1970

About

These unique hand blown Venetian Italian glass sculptures from Italy circa 1970 have the shape of butterfly wings in a beautiful smoked color. Each sculpture has been designed and created to lay in a variety of positions in order to capture light. In addition candles may be arranged to provide gentle illumination that will flicker through the rippled surface of the Italian glass. Please be sure to enlarge the photographs in order to see the tactile quality of the glass in closeup detail. Each piece is priced at $776 each. We found five of these visually arresting objects on the island of Murano.
