Vintage 20th Century, Italian, art glass free-form ashtray, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. This stunning circa. 1950/60’s art glass piece has a beautiful red color and the exterior has a profusion of silver flex inclusions shimmering throughout. Then, this gorgeous art glass piece is encased in clear glass, using the renowned Venetian Sommerso Technique. This red and silver beauty has pulled lobes and is folded in on all five sides to form a wonderful organic free-form shape. Would make a definite statement displayed on your coffee table.
In excellent vintage condition.
Measures approx 2 inches high (at highest part) by 5 inches in diameter at (widest point.)
Factors to consider - since each piece is handmade slight imperfections are normal and add to the unique qualities of each art glass piece. Little spots, bumps, drips, scratches, bubbles, and small variations in size , pattern, color or surface are not considered to be defects in handmade mouth-blown studio glass art; these are normal. They are the marks that make each piece of handmade studio art glass as unique as a fingerprint. No two pieces are exactly alike.
