I bought this small venetian vase because it amazed me with techniques it was made. It is double cased with yellow base color, then its cased with white and then over it with clear, then it has pulled feathers decor applied and then the glass is "satinized". I have nothing to support that it is Fratelli, I just thought that this is how would look pulled feathers vase by them :D so it's most probably by some other manufacturer.

All these techniques come in 10cm or 4in package.

    Thank You for the love :) I looked at it and I can not see the signature on vase itself, I see what You see in the pic too, I think it's just reflection from uneven satin finish, it is very "shallow". I'll try to look at it tomorrow again just to make sure :D

    Hi Mac

    This is known as AGATE glass where multiple strands of glass are melded then blown and stretched throughout the vase as it is blown on the pontil. Not that popular that is why you don't seen much of it around these days but a nice piece to boot

    There are currently quite a lot of vases with this type of decor offered by AuctionFarm Estates, see at Live Auctioneers, they are offered as Persian glass.
