Small Cobalt Blue Murano Gilded Hand Painted Glass Vase
This is a very pretty Small Cobalt Blue Murano Gilded Hand Painted Glass Vase. It dates to approximately the 1950s and is unmarked with a maker’s name. This is typical of tourist ware produced in this period. Looking at the style of the vase suggests it was probably made by the Vecchia glass factory in Venice, Italy, but there is no provenance for this.
Our family has owned the bud vase since the 1970s so we know it isn’t a Chinese copy.
This traditional Murano hand blown bud vase has a thin gold pattern applied to the glass, which has been overpainted with flowers on two sides. There is some surface scratching and loss of gilding, particularly around the neck area of the vase. Otherwise it is in pretty good used condition with no cracks or chips.
A lovely little item for the Murano glass collector or use as a posy vase!
