Italian-murano Art Glass Vase / Barovier & Toso 'primavera 1990' / Venini Era :
Rare Italian Art Glass Vase "Primavera 1990"
~ Barovier and Toso ~
Murano, Italy - Circa 1990
SIZE: Height - (handle to handle) - 9" DESCRIPTION:
Beautifully made, hand-blown and fabricated art glass vase by Barovier and Toso, of Murano, Italy.
Signed with an engraved signature on the foot rim, "barovier & toso - murano"
This vase has a white swirled glass body with an applied black glass trimmed top rim, applied black glass raised foot, and applied black glass handles. All of the black glass is heavily included with gold giving the piece a wonderful 'Novocento' - NeoClassical - Art Deco look.
The piece gives large impression for it's size and is very attractive.
I believe the name of this design is "Primavera - 1990", and it may be fairly rare as very few examples seem to show up for sale. It is reminiscent of the famous "Primavera" line, produced by Barovier from 1929 - 1930, both in form and color, although Primavera pieces did not have gold and has small bubbles in the glass rather than white swirls. The formula for the original Primavera was made by accident and the bubbles could not be replicated in the same way and so the amount of pieces made were severely limited.
This is a large and fine example of the newer, late 20th century version of Primavera. CONDITION:
Excellent condition, as shown in the photos and with the following noted: No damage, no scratches, no chips, no repairs. Light wear to the bottom of the foot. PLEASE NOTE :
