Golden Era Glass

Two prime yet very different examples of what I would consider centerpiece-worthy works from the Italian maestros. The top piece is likely from Salviati given its delicate lightness and fluidity. The bottom footed bowl is heavier in the hand and features bolder fluted lines making it attributable to Barovier or perhaps Barbini. Both 1950's, Murano.

Top bowl is 10.5" in diameter, Bottom bowl is 13" across
