Vintage Pink Swirl Lavorazione "Arte Murano" Ruffled Edge Pedestal Dish.
There is some controversy over Lavorazione pieces. Mady in Italy by artisans in Naples (according to some reputable sites and those in the know) who were possibly trained at Murano. The pieces have the look and style of Murano but, in my opinion, can only be called Italian art glass, as the labeling only designates "Italy" and not "Murano". Lavorazione pieces came on the market in the 1970's and continue to be produced today. The red and gold label on this piece, combined my personal knowledge of it's origins, dates it to the late 1970's or 1980's.
Measures 11.25" in diameter and 5.5" tall
Excellent condition with nary a chip, scratch or crack.
