Murano Sommerso Geometric Glass Star Bowl/Ashtray, C.1960-70
Murano Sommerso Glass Geode Star Bowl/Ashtray, 1960s
This is a wonderfully simple andelegant piece of mid-twentieth century Italian Sommerso (Italian for "submerged")Art Glass from Murano, made to a design popularised by Murano glass artist Flavio Poli for the Seguso Vetri d'Arte factory.
It is a geometric, star shaped space-age geode ash tray or bowl, made sometime around 1970, with a scoop of red glass encased in a layer of yellow, which is itself encased in a heavy, clear,facetted body. The base is ribbed to help protect the piece from damage and scatter the light throughout it.
Geometrically cut & polished, this is a verypretty piece, perfect for display or everyday use- a beautiful antique objet d'art.

I have collected glass and ceramics, antiques and antiquities for many years, and my shop philosophy is to sell very good antiques at very low prices very quickly so I do not need to carry much stock; larger shops will charge much more, but take much longer than I do to make a sale. Each to their own, then - but that makes my prices ultra-low compared to a bricks-and-mortar antiques shop.
I try to describe everything I sell as honestly as possible, including any damage, issues, or attributions to a maker, in my descriptions. If you have any questions, a problem with a piece you’ve bought, or even further info on a piece I’m selling (always welcome!) please mail me. Please don’t ever leave negative or neutral response without speaking to me – we can always come to a solution.
