Huge Mario Cioni Italy Crystal Glass & Sterling Silver Calla Lily Center Bowl:
RARE Huge MARIO CIONI Italy Crystal Glass & Sterling Silver CALLA LILY Center Bowl
Marvelous statement piece rarely seen in the resale market. It is very large and very heavy. By fine Italian maker MARIO CIONI. I think the bunch of flowers is calla lilies, but take a look and judge for yourself. I can only find one other of this item for sale. It is located in Budapest Hungray and priced at 2,200 Euros or about $2,338 USD. It is an outstanding piece of art glassthat works well in both contemporary/modern and transitional decor. The ultimate luxury piece!!!!A dealer friend told me that he thought the flower motif may have been designed by Andrea Branzi, but assume not, since I have not been able to confirm that. SIZE: The glass measures about 15 1/2" in diameter, plus a little extra width of the silver. Glass height is about 31/8" and the silver height is about 4 1/2"Weigh about 8.6 pounds, unpacked. The glass is very thick with smooth edges.MARKS: Identifying marks and artist signatureson glass and silver as shown in photos below. The silver mark has an "R" as well as the 925 purity mark. This indicates the decorative element was eithercreated of a resinor similarthen covered in 925 sterling silver (about 35-40 grams in this case)or visa versa - the silver formed and then filled with resin or similar material.If it was solid silver all the way through the flower motif,the bowl would not be able to stand up. It is not silverplate - it is filled sterling silver.CONDITION: Pre-owned used item. There is an area of slight splitting of the silver and a tiny silver lossas shown in the photos.This likelydeveloped over time from the natural expansion and contraction of the two abutting materials.Expect surface scratches to the glass from use and some tarnish to the silver. Not mint, but presents beautifully! PLEASE SCAN DOWN FOR MANY HIGH RESOLUTION CLOSE UP PHOTOS.
