This is an important piece of Antonio Salviati "Metalliforme" glass designed in 1878. It is very modern in concept as the glass is made to appear metallic and to be an updated version of ancient glassware that had been discovered in Mycenae in the early 1870s (see pictures for more information). Salviati was leading the way for people like Ercole Barovier who focussed on new types of glass and Vittorio Zecchin who focussed on updating classic forms.
The small vase also features two fauns-head masks in black on black. A similar vase from the Stanford University Salviati glass collection is pictured above for comparison purposes.
The glass is in excellent condition with no issues.
12.5cm H., 9cm W.
