This striking piece, attributed to Alfredo Barbini, is thick and heavy. The design is very characteristic of Barbini's work, one of the top talented master glass artists of the 1950s era. It is unmarked which was usual save a flimsy foil and paper label that usually is lost to use and cleaning.
The bowl is approximately 6 inches at its widest. There is light surface scratching to the base. There are 4 small chips as well. The largest is about the size of a grain of rice, and is located close to the rim. The other 3 are tiny flea bites near the base.I have included closeup photos of these issues. The bowl is otherwise in excellent condition. Please view the photos carefully, and contact me with questions.
I strive for 100% satisfaction, so please contact me with any issues. The item "Vintage c1950-Murano Art Glass Geode Bowl-Barbini-Italy-Bullicante-Blue/Gold-6" is in sale since Thursday, December 12, 2019.
