Exquisite Vintage Venetian Gold Veil Art Glass Ashtray
Mesmerizing art glass cased in ruby and colorless crystal with layers of fine gold and silver veil sandwiched between. Lookes like an exotic jewel.
This beauty measures 5” wide and 2” tall, weighs 1 1/2 lbs. Nice medium size. Accommodates cigars to small smokes. Nice as an incense burner or candleholder too. Note: when burning modern candles in vintage glass, be sure to remove the metal wick tacks from the base of the candle first. Metal can get too hot and damage the glass, but melting wax is not harmful.
Made in the 1950s when Sophia Loren made the rich beauty of Venetian/Italian styles so popular in the U.S. Actual artist is unknown as this is not signed, but certainly came from one of the better glass houses like Salviati or Seguso.
In very good condition. Sparkling clean with no chips or chiggers. It has medium to heavy ‘bottom-wear’ as you can see in image 4. Bottom-wear is expected on heavy glass items over 50 years old, it is a sign of age caused by years of surface contact.
