Gold and Amber Sommerso Murano Glass Vase c. 1960

I love decorating with glass and this glamorous deep gold and amber vase is the perfect piece. Its two tone neutral tones and lovely multifaceted, sculptural shape would match with any interiors. It would add the perfect depth and light to a space and perfect as a sexy statement piece in an entryway or on your favorite table.

It is believed that glassmaking in Murano originated in 8th century Rome, with significant Asian and Muslim influences, as Venice was a major trading port. Murano’s reputation as a center for glassmaking was born when the Venetian Republic, fearing fire and destruction of the city’s mostly wooden buildings, ordered glassmakers to move their foundries to Murano in 1291.
