Carlo Scarpa Venini Lattimo Vase "a Mezza Filigrana", 50s

$ 3,000
  • Description
    In 1921 Venini and Cappellin opened a glass factory called Vetri Soffiati Muranesi Cappellin Venini & C. on the islands of Murano, the historic glass production centre in the lagoon of Venice, Italy. With Luigi Ceresa and Emilio Hochs as investors, they arranged to purchase the recently closed Murano glass factory of Andrea Rioda, hire the former firm's glassblowers, and retain Rioda himself to serve as technical director of the venture. Venini embarked on collaborations with architects and designers such as Cini Boeri, Tomaso Buzzi, Gio Ponti, Carlo Scarpa, Ettore Sottsass, Tapio Wirkkala, Gae Aulenti, and Massimo Vignelli. The ethos was to "take the Murano tradition of glass blowing and combine it with the French fashion industry's tradition of using designers".
    Here you can see a small lattimo vase "a mezza filigrana" realized by Venini on Carlo Scarpa design during the 30s. It also has the engraved mark of the manufacturer on the bottom as shown in photos.
    Good condition and completely original. We do recommend a wooden crate for safety during the shipping.
