Collection of eight (8) small scavo vases each approximately 4 inches (10 cm) in height. Shapes vary, some with handles, others with spiral threading or simply unadorned. There are four (4) blue vases, three (3) green vases and one clear glass vase, all with scavo treatment. The scavo technique was developed to imitate ancient glass that had been buried and dug up. The treatment produces rough areas of corrosion, and iridescence on the glass surface. All the vases, except two of the blues, have a red and gold foil label, AVEM/Made in Italy/Murano, affixed to the base. Rough pontil marks. Circa 1960; no chips cracks or repairs.
