We don't have a lot of Murano made glass in our collection but this was just too good to pass up last March. The iridescent cobalt bust appears to us to be a Nubian woman with headdress, or maybe more likely an Italian Renaissance woman. The bust is mounted on crystal base with with expanded gold leaf foil. The bottom is slightly concave. We believe based on our research that the artist may be Napoleone Martinuzzi and that this dates to the 1930s. We don't know this with certainty, so comments are welcome.
