This Laguna pedestal bowl in thin incamiciato (cased) glass with burst gold foil on the exterior is a beautiful red/orange colour. Designed by Tomaso Buzzi in the 1930s, it is a simple classic shape with a clear knop between the bowl and it's flared foot. The colour is vibrant and in the range of Buzzi's Laguna series. The bowl is in excellent condition excepting one tiny fleabite at the base that is difficult to see but can be slightly felt (pictured). It does not detract at all from the piece.
Buzzi's brief tenure with Venini resulted in a somewhat limited, but very esthetically succesful, range of designs. His work as an architect and industrial designer was also very highly regarded.
