Offered for auction is a breathtaking sommerso glass vase in the shape of a ewer (jug,pitcher). Attributed to Barovier & Toso, this vase is triple cased, with clear glass over flame red fading to orange. The vase is boldly ribbed, and the top rim is pulled and worked into a handle and pour spout. The form is of a flattened ovoid. The base is ground and polished.
In the light this vase does truly appear to be on fire, and would make a dramatic statement in any Eames era, mid-century modern home. There are no maker’s marks.
