Large Murano Elephant performing on a Ball, attributed to Nason. Executed in clear glass. The elephant has a wonderfully expressive face as he stands on his hind legs with his trunk out-stretched. The ball has two rows of bubble inclusions (13 bubbles in all). The figure stands 17 inches (43 cm) Tall and is 4 1/4 inches (11 cm)across and 8 inches (20 cm) deep. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. There is a patch of small inclusions under the lower lobe of one ear where the ear attaches to the head, this occurred during manufacture and is not considered damage. Signed: Botallo,G; have seen similar items with G. Botallo signature and Nason label. Circa 1960's
