Measuring 20.5cm tall and 7.5cm wide, this outstanding faceted glass block vase certainly is something else with that WOW factor.
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 golden yellow and chocolate brown submerged in the clear glass.
It's in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or scratches.
