Massive green and orange Murano glass bowl
Many are the different types of glass created by master makers on the Venetian island of Murano. From air-thin vases to expressive sculptures, also massive objects with deep and vivid hues of colour represent the great skills of glassmakers.
The present bowl, most certainly made with a hint of uranium in the glass fuse to give it the peculiar greenish tone, is a perfect example of how attractive massive Murano glass can be. Unsigned, as most pieces of that era, it shows great craftsmanship, and is preserved in beautiful conditions. No cracks, dents or damages of sort are visible, and just a light patina proves it is actually a 50 years old object.
It measures 18x14cm and has a height of 8cm.
