Vtg 1960s Murano Sommerso Art Glass BOWL Red Turquoise Blue ITALY Venetian Label
This stunning vintage 1960s Murano Glass Bowl is the very essence of the play of light and colors that characterizes the art of Venetian glass-making. The bowl's artistic look and its brilliance were achieved by using the famous Murano Glass technique called Sommerso. By expertly layering colored glass without mixing the colors, Murano masters realized a unique look where colors continuously create new chromatic effects under different lighting. The form of this bowl reflects nature's elegance, symbolizing the dynamism of a wave caught mid-flight, and evokes seascapes surrounding Venice.
The Sommerso technique was invented by Murano Glass masters in the 1930s in an effort to express new artistic movements in both colors and forms. This gorgeous Murano Glass centerpiece is an instant conversation piece and a fine Venetian design accent for any room, whether classic or contemporary in style. It can be a functional piece too, holding sweets, fruits, or a potpourri.
This glass bowl is very substantial. A wonderful addition to your glass collection, or as a gift for someone special! The original label is still attached.
There is light wear on the polished base as expected for age and display. The glass is very nice - no chips or cracks. Measures 13 1/2 x 9 x 3 high.
