Martinuzzi Napoleone
Green Chalice


Big bowl in transparent green blown glass.

Transparent blow glass was a typical and almost exclusive product of Murano glassworks until about 1928, when the first opaque glass, that designed by Napoleone Martinuzzi in his capacity as the Artistic Director of V.S.M. Venini & C. consisted of clear and transparent vases, cups and goblets, devised between 1925 and 1927. 

In his production he would mainly focus on volumes, and his items are often larger than the real-life model and/or feature open-mold ribbing, waists or applied glass-thread decoration.

Designed by Napoleone Martinuzzi for Venini.

Murano, 1920’s.

H. cm 33- D. cm 14.
