I'm Bowled Over
This is one of those pieces of glass that stuns at first sight. The label identifies it as Suguso Vetri D'arte the factory established in 1933 by the family whose tradition of fine Murano glass dates back 600 years. This bowl was made during the 50's under the artistic supervision of Flavio Poli. His mastery influenced the somersso style (multi layers/colors) that became one of Suguso's signature looks. This is an impressive size and weight. It measure 7" in diameter and nearly 3" in height. It offers a prismatic light-play throughout the day.
