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.
This is a Beautiful AVeM Murano (Arte Vetraria Muranese) red glass ‘Tutti Frutti’ small vase / bowl / toothpick holder, Venice, Italy circa 1950’s.
A Stunning piece that displays the master craftsmanship and artistry of Murano’s glassblowers.
The exquisite myriad of glasswork includes silver leaf, Zanfirico lattice filigree, twisted ribbon canes, and copper Aventurine. All set in a random form in clear glass, the inner being a rich red glass, which creates a lovely stunning background to the intricate craftsmanship.
Catches the light beautifully through the myriad techniques and colours, the undulating amorphous form looks different from every angle, beautifully curved and organic.
Would make a Fantastic addition to any collection of Murano, European Art glass, and would complement any retro, vintage, mid century, Hollywood regency, fifties, sixties, minimal or contemporary interior.
In Excellent Condition, no chips, a couple of very small surface marks not noticeable on display, the usual age related wear to the base, nothing to detract.
Measures 9 x 9 x 8cm / 3.5 x 3.5 x 3in.
