Vintage Murano Glass Sommerso Vase Purple Green Clear 15.5


Brand Etsy

This is a vase made in Murano, unsigned, but definitely made by one of the well established glass makers, possibly 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 in a tall curved slender form, measuring 15.5 in height. It is made in green, clear and purple glass, vertically arranged with the clear glass separating the green and purple - the base is clear (see close-up photo). 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 wear. This is a very attractive piece of mid-century glass - beautiful form and colour, wonderful accent piece in the right decor!
