Mid-Century Hand Blown Yellow Art Glass Basket Bowl
This is a truly unique hand blown glass basket. It offers a spectacular Italian mid century design, with yellow stripes that resemble some of the Paolo Ventini's work. The basket features wavy ruffle edges and an intricately woven clear handle.
Please note that the basket is unmarked. Having done expensive research, I haven't been able to locate anything identical or similar, but I estimate that it has been made in the 1960s. The glass has some bubbles typical of hand blown art glass. It has minor wear consistent with its age and is in very good vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or repairs.
Height with the handle: 9.3" (23.6 cm).
Height without the handle: 6.8" (17 cm).
Diameter at the opening: 7" (17.7 cm).
Diameter of the bottom: 3.6" (9 cm).
Weight: 2.7 lb (1.2 kg).
