Vintage Murano Glass Bowl Pink & Silver Aventurine


Brand Etsy

This is a lovely piece of vintage Murano art glass in clear glass infused with a pretty light pink colour and with aventurine, silver coloured mica flakes and also possibly small bubbles distributed throughout the glass. I say possibly, because it is unclear to me whether what appears to be bubbles are actually clusters of mica flakes creating the impression of bubbles. In any case, the piece is made of thick glass that is finished in a pebble-like appearance on the exterior. The piece is unsigned but many Murano glassblowers used labels that would disappear over time including Venini and others. The piece measures 5 1/2 across its top with a height of 2. As mentioned, the glass is quite thick - this piece weighs just about 2 lbs, quite heavy for its size. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or wear. This is a beautiful art glass bowl - gorgeous display piece under the right lighting
