Sommerso Petroleum Blue Bullicante Controlled Bubbles Murano Art Glass Bowl or Astray, 4in
CONDITION: Excellent, pre-owned, collectible, and vintage condition.
Overall excellent vintage condition showing very minimal (if noticeable at all). No cracks or chips at all. This piece displays nicely but upon inspection you may notice a few very fine scratches (if any, on the bottom side). There is a bubble or two at the base that is not fully encapsulated, which is more due to it being handcrafted rather than due to use.
DESCRIPTION: An elegant vintage handcrafted Murano art glass piece with Sommerso and Bullicante techniques. A beautiful organic shaped bowl, dish, or ashtray in petroleum blue glass cased into clear glass and full of blown controlled bubbles. This piece has a beautiful blue color with clear "yolk" like edge. This would be great on a coffee table or bookshelf as a pop of color. Any white spots you see are from a glare in the photo. It has three "waves" or "creases" around the edge.
There are no tags, stickers, or engravings; however, the style, quality, and construction can be compared to similar items on sites like Charish and 1stDibs. Compare the pricing as well and one will see that we provide better value with items in superior condition and beauty. A very similar item is shown on 1stDibs for $790 and this screenshot in the last pic of this listing.
