Ercole Barovier was known for creating many types of glass. Crepuscolo was created in 1935 and involved mixing metallic fibres into the mix. This piece has the crepuscolo layer covered in a layer of pulegoso and then cased again in a layer of cristallo (clear) glass. This creates a rich 3D effect with the shading of the glass lightening or darkening depending on how it is held. A very well made and beautiful object. It is in excellent condition with no issues.
