VINTAGE RETRO ITALIAN MURANO ART GLASS PEAR PAPERWEIGHT SOMMERSO. Presenting a wonderful vintage Italian Murano art glass Pear Sommerso paperweight with original label.
This Pear paperweight is great. Truly resembling its real life counterpart in shape and size, the smooth feel and curvature of the form is wonderful to look upon. The colouring is beautiful with the internal layer of glass being a Forest green and the outer layer casing being a golden colour. The applied leaf and stem have been blown in clear glass and applied which contrasts perfectly with the green and gold. The paperweight still holds its original Murano red and gold foil label to its underside ground and polished base.This pear would make a great addition to any Murano or paperweight collection. This piece measures just over 7cm in diameter at its widest and stands 13cm at its tallest point.
Presented in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. There a couple of inclusions to the glass from the making process as is common with handblown pieces.
These dont detract and is mentioned for accuracy. There are some air bubbles and such under the applied leaf and stem, again common with handblown pieces and applied pieces and is also mentioned for accuracy.
