Vintage Handkerchief Vase Green, Blue, and White Cased Glass
Venetian Fazzoletto Handkerchief Vase made from Green, White and Blue Cased Glass. This design was made famous by Italian masters Paolo Venini and Fulvio Bianconi in the early 1950's.
Cased glass is achieved by fusing different colors and opacity of glass in layers and then often cutting away through the layers to expose the other colors in a cameo fashion. This vase is in great condition and has a ground pontil bottom, a sign of craftsmanship that all high quality art glass should demonstrate.
