Venetian Murano Emerald Green Aventurine Vase - image 1 of 6

The name Aventurine derives from the Italian "a ventura" meaning "by chance". This is an allusion to the lucky discovery of aventurine glass or goldstone at some point in the 18th century. One story runs that this kind of glass was originally made accidentally at Murano by a workman, who let some copper filings fall into the molten “metal,” whence the product was called avventurino.

This lovely emerald green aventurine vase, circa 1970, has a bulbous base, slender neck and scalloped top. The splashes of aventurine flows from the base up the neck of the vase. This piece could be a product of the V Nason & Company. The vase measures 5 1/8" in height, 3" across the top and 2" across the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
