EXCEPTIONALLY DESIRABLE EXAMPLE OF SALVIATI MURANO GLASS. Presenting an exquisite antique Murano glass footed scallop shell vase expertly hand crafted by the master Italian glass artist Salviati. This exceptionally attractive example has been crafted in a wonderfully rich and radiant ruby red coloured glass with lavish real gold aventurine inclusions to the trims.
The glass has been masterfully formed into the shape of a slender scallop shell with elegantly draped ribbing accentuating the sleek curves of the form. The scallop shell culminates in a peaked waved rim the edge of which is trimmed with an applied trail of gold filled clear glass. The scallop shell stands proudly atop a ribbed globular shaped clear glass knop which beautifully elevates the form allowing the light to illuminate the richly coloured glass from every angle. A wide ruby red glass foot trimmed with a gold filled clear glass edge adds to stability to this exceptionally impressive example. The ribbing to the shell body beautifully accentuates the sparkle of the glass and radiates light throughout the form.
The combination of the sparkling gold inclusions and ruby red glass is exceptionally attractive. This piece looks exquisite with light illuminating the vibrantly coloured glass. SIZE: This piece stands approx 115mms tall and measures 100mms in length.
The shell measures 40mms in width and the foot measures 75mms in diameter. CONDITION: This piece is presented in excellent antique condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. This stunning piece has been very well cared for as a display item and presents spectacularly.
This exquisite piece would make a fine addition to any Salviati, Venetian or quality Italian Murano art glass collection! A stunning feature in any elegantly styled home and a perfect gift idea for any discerning admirer of fine quality, hand crafted, antique objects of sheer beauty.
