Description: Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) for Venini & Co.
Pennllate (brush strokes) vase
Murano, Italy, c. 1945
clear iridized glass with internal brush-stroke decorations
two-line acid stamp "venini murano"
6"dia x 9"h


Literature:
Carlo Scarpa: I Vetri di un Architetto, Barovier, ppg. 178-181, 223, illustrate the technique

Carlo Scarpa: Venini 1932-1947, Barovier, ppg. 430, 438 illustrate the series

Catalogue Note:
The A Pennellate series was one of Scarpa''s last designs for Venini. Executed in mauve, yellow, or blue against a clear background, they are very thin and lightweight. ''The brush-stroke effect is obtained by adding small quantities of colored opaque glass during the blowing process and dragging them around the vase until the desired thinness is achieved.'' -Marino Barovier

Condition Report: No chips or cracks. No repairs or restoration. No stains or sickness. Mint condition. Very light weight. Polished pontil.
