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!

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.
