Opalescent and Magnificent

A compote of such excessive elegance that it literally glows-in-the-dark. But, once again, it's all about scale - 15.5" in diameter and over 12" high. Opalescent glass is rare, but a piece this enormous is a pure feat of masterful glass blowing - from the venerable Cenedese factory, circa 1960s
BONUS: Being detail oriented, I just had to mention the gold glittered rim!
