This is a Beautiful Murano 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 form is divided into 8 triangular facets, the clear glass exterior contains a submerged, Sommerso, pink layer highlighted by a halo of pale yellow 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 contemporary styled interior.

In Excellent Condition, no marks, chips or scratches, still bears the original ‘Made in Murano, Italy’ foil label.

Measures 16 x 6 x 6cm / 6.25 x 2.5 x 2.5in.
