Circa 1925, by Napoleone Martinuzzi for the Venini Glassworks, on Murano Island, Venice, Italy. This spectacular centerpiece is a masterwork of early twentieth-century Italian glassmaking. The color is a uniquely delicate shade of green and the form is modernist informed by classical motifs. The fabulous, huge size gives this piece eye-popping visual appeal. During his tenure at the Venini Glassworks, Napoleone Martinuzzi was renowned for visionary designs and the development of groundbreaking new techniques. Excellent condition.
