Fine vessel made in Murano by Alfredo Barbini. This vase is made in two colors, aquamarine and transparent. Colors are joined with the incalmo technique, one of the most difficult in blown glass. In particular Alfredo did not join the glass head to head but had a lip on it which retroflex inside creating an inside frame.
The execution is perfect and the result is splendid.
An elegant vase with a marine color to accent your home. Best next to a window to show the beauty of the color.
Vase is signed and labeled.
