Black glass vase using sommerso technique - black within clear. The surface has been worked to give a ribbed pattern to the clear layer in the lower section, with the upper section being smooth black glass. Probably late 20th century, Italy.
Good vintage condition with minor signs of wear as one might expect from age including some small nicks and scratches. Indistinctly hand-signed with the maker's name and the word "Murano".
