Vintage Art Glass Teardrop Vase | Murano Sommerso Glass
An lovely example of sommerso glass, made in Murano, Italy.
Measuring a decent 16cm tall and 9cm wide, this teardrop vase certainly has a WOW factor to it.
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).
Whilst we know this is from the island of Murano, we're unable to identify exactly which Italian manufacturer.
This example has a lovely turquoise blue and cranberry pink 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.
