Item description

Valuable and particular blown Murano glass service composed of 12 water glasses, 12 wine goblets, 12 flute goblets and a jug with handle. The service was made by a skilled Murano glass master between 1951 and 1953 who was inspired by articles and models produced in the early eighteenth century. The glass used is not leaded, but it is sodic-calcic or silica glass, and it is made up of about 70% silica (silicon dioxide), 15% soda (sodium oxide), and 9% lime (calcium oxide). This composition makes Murano glass, produced by hand in the ancient furnaces, visibly irregular and very light. The Master Glassmaker coldly affixed his signature on all the pieces of the service (see photo). We can say, not with certainty, but with approximation, that the signature on the pieces of the served could belong to Bon Aldo, called Polo. Measures in cm: pitcher diameter 14, height 23; water glass diameter 9, height 11; wine glass diameter 8, height 15; flute glass diameter 8, height 22.
