V Nason Murano Sommerso Glass Geode Dish/Ashtray

This is a wonderfully simple &elegant piece of mid-twentieth century Italian Sommerso (Italian for "submerged")Art Glass from Murano, probably by the company V Nason (who were well-known for Sommerso vessels in this colour). It is a geometric, space-age geode ash tray or bowl, circa 1970-80, with a scoop of dark grey glass encased in a chunky clear square body.

Geometrically cut & polished, this is a verypretty piece, perfect for display or everyday use- a beautiful antique objet d'art.

For further examples & information, see Leslie Pina’s book, Italian Glass; Century 20 (ISBN-13 978-0764319297), which pictures similar pieces.

Very good – there is only age-related wear to the base. Displays very well indeed, and is also eminently usable. Please note, the damage in photo 8 (of the nibbles to the edge) happened after the other photos were taken, so the damage does not show on the other, earlier photos.


It willbe very securely wrapped & protected. Domestic insured for £6 – E.U., £12, the U.S. &Canada - £15, Australia, N.Z. and Japan, £17.

About me

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.
