Large vase consisting of murrine and multicolour rods on tall bell-shaped foot, black pasta vitrea profiles
Contemporaneously with Fratelli Toso, the Artisti Barovier were the first to utilize “murine” in their decorative glass vases. Initially applied in naturalistic floral patterns, painters Vittorio Zecchin and Teodoro Wolf Ferrari brought them to more daring, unusual forms. Zecchin expressed his extraordinary sensitivity for colours and polychromatic play in shapes of rings, stars, waves, dots, leaves and flowers.
