Singed Pauly vase with flask oval vase by Berit Johansson, Swedish designer who worked and works for top glass maker companies. She brings a freshness of design with her use of color and mostly flower subjects.
The design is made with pate de verre application over transparent glass.
The result is that the pattern of the design resemble brush strokes.
Berit worked with Pauly at the end of the 1990s, her works are worldwide represented, including Corning Glass Museum.
When I saw the vase, which I have loved it at first glance. I knew very well the flower, my neighborhood, a famous Italian painter, tried to reproduce the Giverny garden, here in Tuscany. He did the trailing with the same roses and planted Nasturtium flowers at the base. It’s the quintessence of the disengaged dreaming Monet’s impressionism world.
Berit made it large scale to cover the whole body of the glass and, probably thanks to Silvano Signoretto, Pino Signoretto’s brother, who used to transfer Berit works from design to glass, there are some leaves completing the three dimensions of the vessel, embracing the neck. The result is magnificent.

Carries an imprinted PAULY stamp on the glass, plus the Murano guarantee label.
This vase will bring a colorful and bright accent to your home, from a famous designer and one of the most important glass factory in Murano.
Directly from Pauly’s shop. Pauly is the witness of the last century history of Murano, worked with Martinuzzi, Barbini, Seguso, Signoretto, Bubacco, Naiejan and so many others that I just can not mention them all.
