Universally regarded as one of the most prolific and capable designers of Murano glass vases and objects at large, Flavio Poli teamed up with some of the most influential and skilled glass producers of Murano to create timeless design pieces.
Amongst all his works, those that gained him the most fame are without doubt the "Sommersi", submerged in english, part of his production with Seguso. They are vases, ashtrays, paperweights characterized by the juxtaposition of vibrant colors in contrasting tones that generate a beautiful overall aspect: the collection earned him the Golden Compass, the most important award for italian designers, in 1954.
The present ashtray is indeed coming from the "Sommersi" collection, and is a small but massive, diamond shaped piece in mesmerizing tones of red, blue and yellow.
It measures approximately 130mm in diameter and has a height of 60mm. Please contact us to arrange international shipping.
