Large Blue/Green Corroso Glass Bowl, Carlo Scarpa, Venini & C, Murano Italy 30

Large Blue/Green Corroso Glass Bowl, Carlo Scarpa, Venini & C, Murano Italy 30
Pictured below is an excellent and sizeable blown glass bowl designed by Carlo Scarpa for Venini & C. The piece features a simple, clean design, with textural, acid-corroded surfaces in thickly blown glass; the bowl is gently curved with a slightly squared shape at the lip.

The color is a deep, dark teal, with an underlying layer of fluorescent green glass that gives the bowl a subtle glow from certain angles. This is an early, sizeable example, beautifully executed, with minimal modern lines and a remarkable color. It would be a fine addition to any collection of modern Italian art glass, and would look great in any Danish modern, Eames or Panton inspired setting.

Measurements: The bowl measures about 5 ΒΌ at its widest diameter and stands about 2 5/8 tall. Condition: The piece is in excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks, repairs, or other notable issues.

Marks: The bowl is signed on the polished pontil with an early, two-line acid-etched mark, venini murano [in script]. Please see my other auctions for more mid-Century modern design, vintage decorative pieces and jewelry.
