We now offer You,for your Art Glass collection, a large ,beautiful,cased ,hand blown Murano Art Glass bowl...This outstanding Work of Art Is the result of the efforts of a Premier, Master Glass Artist..A shame,its not signed. I would not chance to attribute it to a particular Artist but this masterpiece is certainly the work of a master,,Take your choice,Cendese,Barbini,Seguso??? The tender care this item has received,for it's Half Century of life is evident by it's condition, The rim is lightly scalloped with two loosely turned in lobes. The edge of the highly polished pontil base has two tool marks,one highly polished,the other, a little rough, couldn't get them to show on pics. There is a ton of 24 carat gold in this piece heavy,swirls,flecks, inclusions,and dust. At today's gold prices,it would probably be worth melting. Don't forget,when these pieces were made gold was around 50.00 an ounce. I digress. This beauty has no chips cracks scratches or repairs Note :gold is the Hardest color to photograph. on all the pics,the areas that look llike deep tan are actually the heavy gold concentrations.
