Oball Glass (Murano, Italy) Art Glass 6" Fishtail Vase
A lovely example of sommerso glass, made in Murano, Italy. This particular example was made by Oball, as per the signed base.
Measuring 14.5cm (6") tall, this fishtail vase certainly has a wow factor to it.
Not only do we have the Oball signature on the base, but this particular piece still has its original label intact.
Sommerso glass, made famous on the island of Murano, involves internally layering different coloured glass to get a submerged effect (the English translation of the Italian word, sommerso).
This example has bright red, royal blue and a pale golden yellow submerged in the clear glass.
It's in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or major scratches. There are some bubbles in the glass from manufacturing, as often seen in these types of pieces.
