HERE’S AN 8” VISUALLY BOLD AND STRIKINGLY BEAUTIFUL MODERN HAND-BLOWN ITALIAN MURANO “FILIGRANA” OR “A CANNE” ART GLASS BOWL THAT DISPLAYS A DELICATE THIN-WALLED LOW ROUND FORM FILLED WITH ALTERNATING AND SPIRALING BLUE AND GREEN STRIPES EMANATING FROM THE INTERIOR CENTER TO THE TOP RIM!
Please Note: Although unsigned, this Italian Murano “Filigrana” or “A Canne” art glass bowl with internally-decorated alternating and spiraling blue and green stripes is similar in design and color palette to works by Orlando Zennaro as well as Venini. Please undertake Internet searches using the words “Zennaro Filigrana” and “Venini A Canne” to view similar examples.
Also, Please Note: This bowl is odd! And here’s why. Seemingly, the creator of this bowl intentionally made it off center, with one side sitting higher than the opposing side. There is a full half of an inch (1/2”) difference in height from one side to the opposing side.
Dimensions: The bowl being sold here measures approximately two and one half inches (2 1/2”) in height on one side, two inches (2”) in height on the opposing side, by eight inches (8”) in diameter across the top.
Lastly, the bowl’s underside bottom has what is called a “broken pontil mark” or “pontil scar” where the blow pipe was removed from the bowl. This pontil mark was left unpolished. In addition, there are two areas on the bowl’s underside where the bottom was cut and polished. This was done in an effort for the bowl to sit level.
Condition: Very good toward excellent and clean condition with some wear on the underside bottom where the bowl meets the counter. This includes a couple of small surface scratches. And for clarification, there are a number of very small air bubbles here and there but these are original to the making process. Overall, this bowl is still a nice vintage example of Italian Murano “Filigrana” or “A Canne” art glass.
