This is a beautiful and unusual Battuto vase that can also be described as a stylized rosewater sprinkler, given it's unique extended lip. I have seen an identical piece that had the Venini acid stamp on it's base, although this one is not stamped. The vase is mouth blown sommerso glass with Carlo Scarpa's 1930s Battuto (hammered) finish. The glass is also the same red hue as some of the Battuto pieces.
In the midcentury, only the Venini company produced battuto glass, given the production difficulty in combining hot and cold glass working. The brilliant red exterior glass is also cut into bands to expose a soft gold coloured base layer of glass. The piece is very well made and is especially nice with some light shining through it. It is in excellent condition with wear to the base consistent with age. This is a special piece.
