This special "Variegato" piece was made by Dino Martens for Aureliano Toso around 1954. The glass consists of subtle, wavy multicoloured trails achieved by combing the hot glass. The attenuated goose neck also gives the piece added character.
There are two original labels on the bottom. One states: 5498 Made in Italy. The other is a foil label that states: Made in Italy for Harris and Co.
To see a design drawing for this particular model (5498) refer to Marc Heiremans book "Vetreria Aureliano Toso, Murano 1938-1968" (Berlin 2016, page 187).
This is a difficult to find, well documented and important glass art object. It is in excellent condition with no issues.
