Description

This inspired free-form bowl is a quirky, memorable piece in rich lilac with expertly rendered millefiori details. It's a refined glass offering, in the anemone style with floating elements of intricate coloured glass pieces.

Fratelli Toso was formed by six brothers in 1854 and quickly became one of the leading Muranese glass makers. The brothers were joined by Ermanno Toso in 1924 who was appointed as artistic director. Under Ermanno's talented direction they designed and produced some of the most innovative glassware of the era.
