Vintage Art Glass 8" Fishtail Vase | Oball Glass, Designed by Luigi Onesto | Made in Murano, Italy

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

A lovely example of sommerso glass, made in Murano, Italy. This particular example was made by Oball, designed (and signed on the base) by Luigi Onesto.

Measuring 20cm (8") tall, this fishtail vase certainly has a wow factor to it.

Not only do we have the Onesto 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 deep magenta pink and smokey grey 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.
