This colored vase with a geometric, rectangular shape. Made in the 1960s. Hard body was made of thick, ground glass, where a palette of focused and diffused colors is intertwined: shades of blue and purple. Due to its geometry and visible edge features – the vase refracts the light beautifully, creating a three-dimensional effect. A yellow glow can be discerned between the blue and purple hues. This technique is called sommerso and consists in creating an additional, embedded flare between the individual layers. It has a very high aesthetic value and emphasizes the illusionism of the material. This form is characteristic of Italian design from the glassworks on the Murano islands, where the first plant was established in 1921 and since then the techniques of glass coloring have been improved and the tradition of glassmaking has been maintained. There is also a famous museum dedicated to glass products – Museo Vetrario.
The vase is in its original vintage condition. It does not have any chipping or blemishes. Signed with a round Murano sticker.
