A most attractive, midcentury freeform art glass vase produced in Murano, Italy. Rather than the usual straight up shape, the opening veers off to the side creating a very unusual appearance. The highlight of this example is the rich ruby red color containing streaks of what are known as copper oil spots. The outer layer of glass is clear with the inside an opaque white milk glass hue. Most likely produced during the middle part of the 20th century by one of the many talented studios on the island. Unmarked so not sure of the studio of origin. The vase stands 9 1/2” tall with the base measuring 3” across. The bottom is flat with a small area of roughness from the original pontil mark. Thorough examination reveals no chips, cracks, damage repairs. The inside appears clean, showing no staining. A chance to add a great example to your collection.
