Murano sommerso glass deer, Venice, Italy circa 1950’s / 60’s

This is a Beautiful glass deer figurine, made in Murano, Venice, Italy circa 1950’s / 60’s.

A Wonderful piece, the stylised deer / fawn / bambi figure has great detailing from the graceful legs to the pointy ears, bushy tail to ball nose!
All in a Fantastic Sommerso glass in red, yellow and clear glass. Catches the light amazingly through the colours and curves.

A Striking example showing the skill and craftsmanship of the glassmakers of Murano. Similar pieces were made by Cenedese, Seguso, AVeM, Flavio Poli and Fratelli Toso, and this is very reminiscent of the styles and output of the era.

Would make a Stunning addition to any collection of Murano / Italian / Art glass, and would complement any retro, vintage, 50’s, 60’s, mid century, modernist, kitsch or contemporary styled interior.

In Excellent Condition, no marks, chips or scratches.

Measures 19 x 14.5 x 7cm / 7.5 x 5.75 x 2.75in.
