EXCEPTIONALLY FINE EXAMPLE OF QUALITY VINTAGE ITALIAN MURANO ART GLASS. Proudly presenting an exceptional mid 20th century Murano art glass cornucopia, or horn of plenty vase, which was expertly handcrafted by a master Italian glass artist circa 1950s. The exquisite quality and expert craftsmanship leads one to believe this piece is infact the work of the Master Archimede Seguso.
This exceptionally fine example has a wonderfully stylish and elegant form and a most appealing milky opaline green colour. The perfectly proportioned horn-shaped body leads to a stylish flared, lily-shaped rim and culminates in a slender twisted tail. The beautifully twisted form sits elegantly upright, balancing on two expertly tooled white opaline glass leaf-shaped feet, their crimped surfaces enhancing the sparkle of the glass. The stunning mint green opaline glass body has an appealing milky opalescent vaseline quality, adding a stunning ethereal lightness to the perfectly proportioned form.
The cornucopia has been expertly formed with appealing ribbing twisting around the vessel. The ribbing perfectly follows the sleek contour of the form, increasing in width as they approach the wide opening. The gorgeous ribbed surface wonderfully enhances the incredible sparkle of the glistening glass as light reflects off the stylish curves and radiates throughout the form to create impressive optical effects. The beautifully twisted form, exquisite radiating ribbing and stylishly flared top rim add a magical sense of movement in this expertly crafted and elegantly designed piece. This piece looks exceptionally beautiful with light illuminating the glass, beautifully enhancing the milky opalescent nature of the opaline glass while accentuating the ribbed form.SIZE: This exceptionally attractive piece stands approx 120mms tall, measures 95mms in length and 80mms in width.
