This is a wonderfully simple andelegant piece of late twentieth century Italian Sommerso (Italian for "submerged")Art Glass from Murano, possibly by the well known Mandruzzato workshop.
A long scoop of cobalt blue glass has been encased in a layer of yellow, with the whole clad in a chunky, clear, facetted geometric body – the original Murano export label is still attached to the base.
In very attractive colours, this piece is excellent for display.
Measures 8" (20cm)high.
Excellent – there is some very minor nibbling to the inner rim, and two fleabites to the base; however, there is water staining to the inside.

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.
