Vincenzo Nason. Vetro neutro and bluino color.
Here a beautiful and classy set serving ten people. Set is made by a flute/champagne, wine, water and gelato or tiramisu.
Beautiful pitcher. All hand made in thin glass with the Classic Murano shape with the addition of the little sphere.
Very light and precious. Perfect for a seaside home or for matching china with blue pattern.
Vetro neutro is a colorless glass that was used when Murano was making scientific instruments. The use of this particular transparent color survived on stemware where a neutral color is more appreciated. Bluino is a more rare light blue color a bit darker than acquamarine and not so intense as cobalt blue.
Base reads and other identifications, references: Labelled and etched V.Nason& C. Label still on most of the pieces witnessing no or rare use. Vincenzo Nason closed at the end of the 90s. Every time I go to Murano I see the abandoned huge factory. It was such an important player for decades in the Murano arena. I am assigning this set to the late 1980s.
