Vintage Venetian art glass bowl with encased bubbles and real gold veiling.
Beautiful vintage Venetian art glass bowl hand-made in Italy, mid-20th century.
Expertly crafted authentic vintage glass art bowl from mid-century Italy. Thick high quality glass with hundreds of tiny bubbles encasing an inner layer of dark purple and finished with real gold veiling.
Occasional bowls were made to accommodate the occasion. This beauty is designed to be an eye-catching piece of art without anything within its bowl, or it can be used in other ways. Makes a lovely candy, nut, flower or herb bowl. Can be used as a catch-all. Do not use as a candle holder unless there is no metal parts on the candle.
Hefty glass weighs 2.8 lbs. Measures 4.5″ square and 2.5″ tall. In great condition, with no chips or cracks. There is one light scratch on inner bowl. Flat polished base has age indicative bottom wear. Bottom wear is scratching on the base caused by many years of surface contact. Estimated circa 1940’s.
