A fabulous abstract free form Murano glass basket dish in rich sapphire blues and vibrant turquoise greens. The organic shape was hand blown and then stretched to create the basket-like piece. Reminiscent of an exotic sea creature or sea plant.
The original foil label reads, " MURANO GLASSWARE - Crystal Clear - MADE IN ITALY".
The stunning vase measures 5 1/2" long, 8 1/2" at widest points and stands 8 1/2" high. Dates to the mid-1900's.
Condition is near MINT with absolutely no wear issues. The ground base sits evenly.
Murano stretch glass is much sought after and this piece is exquisite - Venetian art glass at its best.
Much of the world's most prominent and beautiful colored glass is produced by the Venetians on the island of Murano, Italy.
