Unusual Murano Modern Sommerso Art Glass Bowl. For sale is the most interesting and cleverly crafted example of Murano sommerso I have ever come across. At first I thought that it was a uniform piece of glass just magically changing color like alexandrite, but after hours of picking it up and turning it around and around I finally saw the layers through one of the facets "see last photo".The centre of the bowl is a fairly dark green, then clear, then light blue, the combination of these colors producing cobalt blue. When the bowl is at rest in daylight and you look down on it, the thick rim appears cobalt blue, with the centre of the bowl appearing teal green, the rim turning purple under fluorescent lighting. Bowl measures 5-5/16 inches in length, 4-11/16 inches in width, and 2-1/2 inches in height, being in excellent condition without any chips, nicks, or cracks, showing some minor signs of use (Note; the top rim shows some very light scuffing that appears to be from cleaning "this looks like it would easily polish out", and there is a very small "pinhead sized" inclusion on the inside of the bowl that is barely noticeable).
