|This large and delicate Murano glass compote measures just under 10" high and the bowl is 6" in diameter. The base and stem have a gold flecked polveri finish, the bowl has silver flecked finish, and both the stem and bowl are overlaid with a red threaded design in high relief. The stem is decorated with red serpentine figures and there are red segments at the base and at the bowl creating a very rich design and color combination. Pontil marks are visible on the base and in the bowl. Similar in style to works of Salviati, Barovier, Seguso and others, it is not signed, but demonstrates exceptionally fine craftsmanship and aesthetic appeal. Perfect condition, very slight wear to bottom of base. The colors vary due to the light, and one of the photos is done with a flash, showing a slightly different tone. The translucence appears almost opalescent when lit from above. Please email for additional photos.|
