15 inch Tripple cased Murano vase?

(1/2) > >>

I think this is a Murano vase though I have never seen a Murano piece with a rim like that.

15 inches high

Tripple cased

The remains of a silver and yellow label.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.  :)

Have you seen Barbaras 'Huge Flavio Poli Decanter' posting on the Murano board?   :shock:  :D

Is someone breeding them somewhere???


I'd say Max is right this should have a glass top as it is indeed a decanter - I think it is double sommerso layer, two colours and the clear casing, triple sommerso is rare, especially in big guys like this,2691.0.html

The label looking round may be the remains of a red and gold generic Murano label - even Made in Italy - the other factories associated with say Poli tended to do a different shaped label

It's still a lovely object, I am not sure of the age, I know it has a lot of base ware but that can be from 1970s or 1990s which is 25 years ago now

It is indeed fun fun fun

Thanks, I would never have guessed that it was a decanter.  :o

So triple sommerso casing has three colours and the outer casing?  :)

You are right Tiger

I need to clarify - your item is logged in most books as a triple cased sommerso item, so you were right to say that in your first post

That takes into account the two colours and the clear casing - I still tend to say double sommerso layer, but triple cased is good and I apologise for confusion :oops:  :oops:

What do you call 3 sommerso colours and a clear casing then - quadruple cased?


What about five - how many bounces - Adam D555 :twisted:  :twisted:
