This Murano basket vase was made by AVeM, probably in the 1950s. It is similar to baskets made by Fratelli Toso, but it is smaller and more thickly cased. The murrines -- 5 on each side -- are embedded in the casing layer so you can feel them on the outside. The basket is in excellent condition, with no damage. There are tooling marks on each side of the rim made when the handle was shaped -- not damage, but I wanted to mention. The original AVeM label is still in place on bottom.
