Vetreria Franco Moretti, Italy

Sold! (approx. € EUR / $ USD)

A very vibrant bulbous vase in bright green glass with applied ruby-red handles, and matching trailing to the body and rim, designed and made by Franco Moretti in Murano in the 1980s.

The exterior is decorated a scavo - a technique whereby the vase is rolled in ashes and salts whilst still semi-molten to create the time-weathered look of excavated Roman glass.

Engraved 'Franco Moretti' to the base.
