Salviati Murano Venetian Hand Blown Green & Gold Dragon Centerpiece

Salviati Murano Venetian Hand Blown Green & Gold Dragon Centerpiece

An exceptional example of Venetian glassblowing mastery, this large and impressive centerpiece made by Antonio Salviati is sure to impress! All hand blown elements are fused together to create this masterpiece; the quilted optic bowl and foot in a vibrant apple green, embellished with gold leaf inclusions is further decorated with whimsically applied figural dragons. The connector/stem is also decorated with gold leaf knop and encircling dragons. The detail and workmanship is outstanding and the not the least bit cartoon-ish. The dragons have realistically applied eyes and tongues and they create a dramatic contrast with their vibrant gold leaf inclusions. The bowl is finished off with applied prunts surrounding the circumference. This makes a fabulous centerpiece and an amazing addition to a themed display. Ca. 1900-1910
