Fratelli Toso (Murano, Italy) Art Glass Centrepiece
A fabulous piece of gorgeous Murano glass, made by Fratelli Toso, circa 1960s.
This particular centrepiece, in its glorious sky blue and opalescent pairing, is featured in an organic star shape. The blue fades from dark to light as it goes inwards, with clear points, almost like handles, which you can see in the pictures. The blue is layered in clear glass, which is then layered in opalescent glass, which you can see from the underside.
It's in great to excellent vintage condition too. There are no chips, cracks or major wear. We can see a couple of small, light scratches and then of course bubbles in the glass, from the manufacturing process.
Measuring approx 6.5cm tall and 29cm wide it's big enough to make a fabulous statement on any display space.
