Vintage Murano Glass Sommerso Basket Vase Archimede Seguso 9.13


Brand Etsy

This is a basket vase made in Murano, unsigned, but almost definitely made by Seguso Vetri dArte, which specialized in the sommerso technique of glassmaking. Seguso Vetri dArte was founded in 1932 by Archimede Seguso with other partners. Flavio Poli, who was famous for his Sommerso designs, was artistic director of the firm from 1937 until 1963. The vase is made with a slender bottom and a wide rounded top, measuring 9 1/8 in heigh and 5 3/4 in width at its widest. It is made in green cased within a golden yellow within clear glass. It is hand polished on its underside, a sign that it is an older hand blown piece. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or pronounced wear - I did noticed a tiny light scratch on one side, but this is very minor. This is a very attractive piece of mid-century glass - beautiful form and colour, wonderful accent piece in the right decor!
