VINTAGE ITALIAN MURANO MANDRUZZATO SOMMERSO FACETED GLASS BOWL EAMES ERA. EXQUISITE VINTAGE ITALIAN MURANO SOMMERSO GLASS BOWL BY MANDRUZZATO. Presenting an exceptional vintage Italian Murano faceted sommerso art glass bowl produced by Mandruzzato circa 1950s.
Two exquisite sommerso layers of vibrant colour float within the sparkling lead crystal form which has been exquisitely cut to form faceted geometric faces. A layer of rich purple forms the central core surrounded by a halo of blue, both colours encased within the thick crystal clear walls of the vessel, forming magnificent arcs of radiant colour suspended sommerso style within.
Each face of the crystal has been cut to form exquisite geometric triangular shaped faceted sides producing fabulous clean angular lines and beautifully bold, prism faces. The bold, modernist geometric faceted faces contrast spectacularly with the sleekly curved interior of the bowl and the radiant arcs of colours encased within.
The thick crystal walls act as a lens, creating exquisite distortions and reflections of light, and magnifying and intensifying the colours within. The exquisite colours radiate throughout the vessel, refracting of the faceted faces spectacularly and combining to form striking colour combinations. This exquisite piece is unsigned, but it is almost certain this fine example was made by the legendary Mandruzzato, arguably one of the most daring and innovative glass artists of the period. There is no doubting this is an exceptionally well made and beautifully finished vintage piece created by a Master Italian glass artist. This superb piece is presented in exceptional vintage condition with no chips, cracks or repairs.
