Ercole Barovier Iridescent Vase, Murano c.1942


A stunning vase from one of the masters of Murano glass production, Ercole Barovier. Produced in 1942, this vase was produced from the series called 'a grosse costolature'. Typical of Barovier's early work, this beautiful, milky white glass shimmers in a multitude of colours when lit. The clarity and weight of this glass is synonymous with early Murano glass production.
