This is a large Sommerso murano bowl "Sommerso (lit. "submerged" in Italian), or "sunken glasses", is a form of artistic Murano glass that has layers of contrasting colors (typically two), which are formed by dipping the object in molten glass; the outermost layer, or casing, is often clear. Sommerso was first developed in Murano during the late thirties and was made popular by Seguso d'Arte in the fifties. This process is a popular technique for vases, and is sometimes used for sculptures."
This piece is done in 3 colors Blue, uranium green and gold attributed to Flavio Poli for Seguso vetri d'art circa 1954. Piece is in Excellent condition no chips or flea bites natural age wear to baseand measuring at 9 " x 7" and 4 " tall.
This is probably one of my favororite pieces for color, when the natural light hits this piece literally radiates the colors.
