We are pleased to offer these two (2) vintage Murano Art Glass Bowls for your consideration. Both are spectacular, visually stunning pieces, but each has its own individual character and features.
The first Bowl is the larger of the two and has an overall Opalescent Apricot coloration created by the combination of Clear, White, and Orange Glass enhanced by a fine network of Gold sparkles. Starting at the rim, we see three distinct bands starting with Clear glass, then Clear with Gold sparkles, and finally Clear with Gold on top of a mixture of White and Orange Glass.
This gorgeous piece is 2-3/4 inches high, 7-1/4 inches long, and 6-3/8 inches deep with a weight of 3 pounds 3 ounces. We find one small rough area near the rim measuring about 1/4 by 1/8 inch where it appears a bubble in the glass formed at the surface and chipped slightly at its edges. The ground base also has some surface bubbles with rough edges, as well as some intact bubbles just below the surface. The overall condition is very good to excellent (see pictures).
The second Bowl is quite a different piece but has its own unique beauty. It is made from Clear glass over colored glass, with a layer of Silver Opalescent patches behind the colors. We see vibrant Blue, Red, Purple, Orange and other colors in an irregular Spiral formation. The colors are complemented by a ruffled edge. Each viewing angle and alteration in external lighting offers a different and unique scene.
Standing 2 inches high, 6-1/2 inches long, and 5 inches wide, this multicolored piece weighs 1 pound 1 ounce. A couple of tiny rough-edged surface bubbles were noted, but the piece is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs.
These are two fabulous Murano Art Glass Bowls. They would make much appreciated Holiday Gifts, sure to be cherished by the recipients, or would make wonderful additions to any Art Glass collection!
