Item e6611

A large Venetian art glass bowl of the Polveri series introduced by Archimede Seguso in 1953. Thick clear glass with internal gold-speckled and coral red glass decoration. An authentic piece of Murano art glass of the 1950s designed and manufactured by one of the greatest Venetian glass masters.

For centuries the name Seguso has been associated with glass art from Murano. Archimede Seguso (1909-1999) is the master glassmaker of the family history of the 20th century. In the 1950s Archimede showed all his genius with creations like the 'Merletto' (lacework) the 'Reticello Piume' (feathers) or the 'Polveri' (powdered) series. The cooperation with Tiffany & Co allowed Seguso new opportunities for great collections. In 1989 Archimede Seguso celebrated his 80th birthday in New York with a solo exhibition - the title speaks for itself: The Master of the Masters. His worldwide exhibitions are always a box office hit and are sometimes extended twice.
