Vase in “merletto composto” glass

Of all the variations of the merletto glass series, merletto composto glass is unquestionably the most spectacular. The insertion of bands of coloured glass that separate the irregular expanses of merletto glass gives the vase an absolutely asymmetrical, almost accidental, extremely innovative form never seen before in Murano in the early 1950s. Groundbreaking experimentation of such intricacy testified to the level of expertise Archimede Seguso had reached in every glassmaking technique.
