Giampaolo Martinuzzi (Napoleone Martinuzzi's son) has made a name for himself as a glass designer and is highly regarded for his primitive etched glass. This piece from 1979 is created with super thin bubbled glass is covered with a simple repeating pattern.
The vase is very delicate looking and requires a close examination to really appreciate its quiet beauty. There is an etched signature on the bottom and the piece is in excellent condition.
