Italian Venetian Art Glass Fruit Salad Necklace & Earrings Murano Italy
A veritable feast for the eyes! This beautiful hand wrought Murano or Venetian Glass necklace and earrings from Italy of the 1940s is spectacular! Oranges, bananas, peaches, mangoes, pears, lemons & berries were individually fashioned onto wire and then applied to a base necklace of bright green glass beads to create this wonderful work of art. Delicate green glass leaves are interspersed between the fruit, creating depth and interest. Some of the fruit has applied lampwork decor...stripes on the bananas, stem ends on some of the round fruit, while some of them are "sugared" and present a textured appearance. The necklace terminates in an old floating thumb catch clasp. The matching earrings cluster oranges with delicate leaves. Truly a fun and fabulous find in this lovely Venetian glass demi parure from the skilled craftsmen of Venice!
Measurements: The necklace is 18" in wearable
length and approximately 1 1/2" in width throughout its length. The
earrings are approximately 1" x 1 1/4"
Condition: In very, very good vintage condition. I can find only two leaves that appear to be broken. I'm sure there may have been more pieces of fruit on it at one time, but it appears to be balanced and pretty full. The wires on which the piece are strung have developed a lovely old patina. The floating thumb catch clasp works as it should and remains securely fastened when worn. The clip earrings have plenty of spring in them, remain securely fastened when worn and are comfortable to wear. All of the elements of the set appear to be original to manufacture and are appropriate for the age/period. Please click on these photos and carefully review the enlargement photos to make your assessment of the piece. And, as always, please feel free to contact me with specific questions or to request additional photos prior to offerding.
Hallmarks: MADE & ITALY on the earrings backs
Circa: 1940s Post WWII - Mid-Century
