Gorgeous vintage late Deco era art glass vase by Barovier & Toso of Murano, Italy. Flared Trumpet shape with footed base and fluted "handles". Rare plum aubergine purple color in swirl pattern. Avventurina (Aventurine) 22k gold flecked treatment evident to handles and around top of mouth. Pontil on bottom. Excellent condition measuring 8 1/2" high and 6 3/4" wide. A heavy and substantial piece of Italian art glass. Came from the estate of an elderly gentleman who received this as a wedding gift. Could date earlier to the 1930's or later to the 1950's. An exquisite investment piece! There is a comparable one in cobalt on another website for $3950 and another touted as super rare color that sold in Manhattan, see last pic as it is quite similar. Great price for an excellent piece of art glass.
