Proudly presenting a stunning vintage Italian Murano art glass bowl expertly hand crafted by a Master Italian glass artist circa 1950s. This exceptional piece has a sleekly curved, clean-line form and a striking colour combination.This exquisite piece has been spectacularly coloured with a radiant layer of golden topaz yellow encased within a striking halo of radiant blue suspended sommerso style within the sparkling clear glass form. The magnificent colours blend and combine to create a stunning range of tones including gorgeous green tones. The colours magnificently radiate throughout the sleek form, glowing with a magical neon intensity as they reflect off the sleek curves and thick rim. The glass has been expertly tooled to form an organically curved leaf shaped top rim with a pointed tip to one edge perfectly contrasting the three sleek curves to the others.
The glass has been crafted to form thick sweeping lobes which radiate around the form, spectacularly radiating light throughout the glass to create striking effects. This exquisite piece looks amazing with light passing through the glass, wonderfully intensifying the radiant colours and casting vibrant reflections. This piece is presented in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or repairs.There are also a few exceptionally light and fine surface scratches to the interior, noticeable only on extremely close examination in bright raking light but mentioned for complete accuracy. Most would never even notice this let alone mention it.

This piece has been very well cared for and presents spectacularly. This piece has been well finished with a quality flat ground polished base and concave polished pontil. There are sufficient light surface scratches to the base to authenticate this is a genuinely vintage example.
