Vintage from the 1960s


Glass, Sommerso floating colour, Cut sides, Clear casing, Amber colouring


Height: 8.5 Centimetres; Width: 13 Centimetres

A super golden amber Murano art glass dish. Made in Murano, near Venice, Italy. Original design attributed to Mandruzzato or Campanella. It's square/octagonal from above, with pentagon and triangular shaped cut (faceted) sides, tapering down to a small square flat polished base. Each side is skillfully polished flat at a precise angle. There's 12 cut sides (3 x 4), which reflect the light in an amazing way. Flat polished rim with a rounded square opening. It's amber internally (a rounded well) with a golden yellow floating colour (sommerso). The outer glass, the casing, is clear.

I think it's an older 1950s or 1960s version of the design due to the size, weightiness, quality and flat base. A more sizeable 8.5cm tall x 13cm wide. Around 1.15kg - quite a decent statement chunk of Venetian glass. Hand made/hand finished - a beautifully made piece. Looks amazing in the sunshine!

Excellent displayable condition with no obvious chips or scratches or nibbles... not many external signs of age. There are some imperfections inside the inner rim - inside the bowl the rim is sharp with a few inner slithers/nibbles, I suspect this is from being cut at the time of manufacture (see photo 6 as an example). These areas are only visible when viewed sideways on. Please study all photos.

Overall - a great example for the age and era, and I know you'll love it! I'd give it a 9/10 - very displayable and better than most.

Includes P&P to the UK. Perfect gift idea.

This seller usually responds within a few hours.

Items weighing under 2kg total will be posted by 2nd class Royal Mail. If it's a high value item I'll add Signed For. Items weighing over 2kg will be posted by Hermes, and if they are high value I'll add Signed For. I may not be able to post to some areas of the UK, such as the Channel Islands, but I'll give it a good go! I'll try to post within 24 hours (when Post Office opening hours allow).
All postage abroad will be by Royal Mail's International Tracked and Signed service, so will need signing for your end. Please say if you'd prefer just a Tracked service instead. I can't post anything that weighs over 2kg or is larger than a 'small parcel'.
I have specially chosen these items to be of superior quality and condition for their age and era. All my items are vintage (25+ years old) and may naturally have some wear and tear which may not be in the description. I have written everything to the best of my ability, and tried to describe any obvious flaws. The photos also help to show the condition - please view all photos and read the descriptions.
For lower value items I'm happy for you to provide the address and unique code for a UK onward mailing company, but I cannot accept responsibility for any damage or non-delivery beyond the mailing company's address. Once the UK mailing company has safely received the parcel it is no longer my responsibility.
Why buy new? Buy vintage, and help protect the planet. You're rescuing vintage pieces for future generations. Also, please don't bin my packaging - save, re-use and recycle. Thank you.
I use large bubble bubble-wrap with strengthening card and sturdy cardboard boxes. I often double box for safety and I re-use old newspapers to fill any gaps. I have been selling on Etsy for over five years and know and trust my packing. Jewellery is posted in small sturdy cardboard jewellery boxes, in a mailing bag. (Please re-use or recycle any packaging!)
UK free postage is factored into all my prices... I think UK customers like to see an upfront price including postage with no hidden surprises. Sorry I can't offer free post worldwide.
