moreAn eye-catching objet d’art to complete that special shelf, nightstand or coffee table vignette. Moonlights as a functional decorative object for a desk or work table.
This unusual vintage blown glass paperweight with timeless style features brilliant colored swirls of orange, yellow, turquoise blue and green suspended within the translucent glass sphere and is crowned by a white flower-like starburst with navy blue center. Although the visual impression will vary with changes in light sources, time of day, characteristics of adjacent surfaces and other aspects of the setting, the bright colors of this striking piece stand out almost as if ‘lit from within’ even in moderate light.
The numerous bubbles floating within the glass are a common characteristic of Murano art glass. Pontil marks on the smoothly finished base are evidence of where the glass blower artisan released the metal rod used to shape the glass. While there is no evident maker's mark, that's fairly common for Murano pieces of this era, and it is believed that this is an authentic Murano creation. However, this is not a feature that is being guaranteed.
Condition is excellent with no obvious wear consistent with age. It is suggested that prospective buyers 'zoom in' on photos to make sure any character-defining natural imperfections evident in this hand crafted item are acceptable.
