Summary

An super example of a Murano sommerso faceted art glass block vase, attributed to and probably by Mandruzzato, Murano, Italy. Vintage 1960s/1970s mid-century iconic design - unsure of exact vintage of this example, probably 1970s.

A striking chunk of vintage art glass - it's a more petite 6" tall. It's 477g and solid glass with a small inner well suitable for holding a small bunch of short stemmed flowers. It's a vivid ruby red colour with a subtle floating submerged amber colour (sommerso), all cased in clear. Square (flat and polished) top rim and base with four rectangular polished flat sides.

It's all pretty much as it originally left the workshop, handmade by a skilled glassblower. Due to the handmade nature, it tapers out very slightly towards the top - it's 4cm wide at the base and 4.3cm wide at the top. And this particular artist has rounded off the top corners and created a softer outer rim, see photos.

Excellent condition, no chips, no noticeable scratches. One internal bubble shown on the last photo - visible near the top on one side. No water staining or marks. The rim is very good with just a couple of tiny hard to see flaws or microscopic bites, please study photos. The inner rim is as originally cut - slightly irregular.

Perfect for a mid-century mantelpiece - ideal gift for a collector. Overall I'd give it a 9/10 - very good for the age and better than most.
