Three-Handled Vase


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Invented around 50 BC in the region of Syria and Palestine, the technique of blowing glass revolutionized glassmaking. Salviati pieces share bulbous forms that are characteristic of free-blown glass. Salviati and Co. goes one step further by the addition of bright colors and glass slices to the exterior, creating whimsical effects.
