It looks like a rocket ship and it's made of hand blown Murano glass.
This was most likely intended to be a candle holder because it was made exclusively for CX DESIGN, a boutique lighting design company based in SoHo, New York. Established in 1990, this design group offers the only complete lighting collection individually hand-crafted by master Italian glass blowers on Murano, an island just north of Venice – the centuries old, undisputed center of the world’s most treasured glass.
The clear tag on the front of the rocket (also usable as a vase) says...HAND BLOWN IN MURANO ITALY EXCLUSIVELY FOR CX DESIGN.
The piece measures 2 1/4 inches across by 6 inches high. The inside goes about 4 1/2 inches deep. The bulbous top part has a thick rim and the color is a mottled pinkish red. The three legs are seafoam green, also with a textured design within the glass.
We could find no other piece like this so it may have been a limited production item for CX...even a single prototype piece.
Excellent vintage condition. No cracks or chips. Slight wear to the label but it's still readable.
