This vividly exquisite handblown work of mid-century Murano art glass brings with it the incredible beauty created by a number of expert Murano glass working techniques.

The expert techniques showcased in this handblown and sculpted piece of art glass includes:
- Satinato, the art glass technique that creates a 'frosted' or 'satin effect'
- Lattimo, also known as milk glass, as the final glass looks like fine china porcelain
- Zanferico, the glass technique that gives rise to elegantly striped and colourful objects. Different colours are fused together to form a striped mass that is then blown and shaped

As if the featuring of 3 exceptional Murano techniques was not enough, there is a further mother of pearl effect, Herringbone-patterned layer on the exterior surface, encasing the body. The work is finished with a ribbed and scalloped satin handle and a fluted ripple rim.

This stunning work is the Murano mid-century interpretation of Victorian art glass that enjoyed a popular revival at the time. The combination of the palette, condition, and form makes this piece a highly prized and rare find.
