Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Faceted art glass block vases were produced by many manufacturers on the island of Murano, Italy, with the most popular and well-known being Mandruzzato.

Whilst the company is well-known for their exquisite pieces of highly sought after glass, they are by no means the only company that delivered such incredible pieces.

Other companies that have produced glassware in this faceted style include Campanella, V. Nason, Formia, Bucella Cristalli, Vetri Molati, Cesare Toso, Gianni Seguso and Oball, just to name a few.

Most if not all of these faceted art glass block vases feature a layered colour submerged effect, known as as 'sommerso' (the Italian word for submerged), which was made famous on the island of Murano itself.
