Faceted Art Glass Neodymium 9" Vase | Made in Murano, Italy *RARE FIND*
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.
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.
Whilst we know it was made in Murano we cannot confirm the manufacturer, as this style was made by many makers such as Mandruzzato, Bucella Cristalli and Campanella.
It measures approx 9" tall (22.5cm) and has gorgeous tones of dark grey submerged in a light purple glass, which is in fact neodymium glass. Neodymium glass changes colour depending on the light; natural versus fluorescent light will change the colour from lilac to blue (as per the colour change in the pictures).
It is also in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or scratches.
