Murano Mandruzzato Sommerso Uranium Art glass Vase, Italy circa 1970’s

This is a Great Murano Uranium Sommerso faceted glass vase, made by Mandruzzato, Venice, Italy circa 1960’s / early 1970’s.

 
A Striking faceted design, beautifully and skillfully hand made, highlighting the best of Murano glass craftsmanship and technique with modern futuristic design. 
The rectangular exterior (with a very pale pink colour to the clear glass) contains submerged (Sommerso) yellow and green capsules with a round shaped opening.
Under UV lighting the layers have a fantastic green glow, due to the Uranium Oxide in the glass!
 
A Beautiful geometric understated sculptural form which could be used as a single stem vase, desk paperweight or centrepiece, a fantastic space age, retro styled home accessory.
 
Catches the light amazingly through the facets and Sommerso layers.
Would complement any collection of art / Murano glass, and would look fantastic in any retro, vintage, 60’s, 70’s, minimal, modernist, mid century or contempoarary styled interior.
 
In Excellent Condition, no marks, chips or scratches.
 
Measures 15.5 x 4.5 x 4.5cm / 6.25 x 1.75 x 1.75in.
