Archimede Seguso of Murano Glass perfected a technique of trapping “bollicine” (bubbles) of air inside the glass. His technique is known as the "bullicante effect." This sculpted Italian bowl offers the striking beauty of the controlled bubbles and sparkles with the coppery gold of Aventurine infused within the glass. The bowl can take on a fiery appearance when on a dark background and the light hits it just right.
The words; "Made in Italy" are easily deciphered from the worn foil label that remains intact on the inside of this heavy glass bowl. The sculpted and crimped (or pinched and folded) sides give the bowl a triangular shape. The bio-morphic shape is indicative of mid-century art glass. It is in Excellent Condition without chips or nicks noted and a lovely piece of art. The bowl measures 8" across at the widest points and a deep 3 1/2" tall.
VERY HEAVY, thick and sturdy piece. The shipping costs will reflect the weight of over 6 pounds packaged.
