Seguso Vetri d'Arte Alexandrite Ashtray...
« on: July 24, 2010, 03:40:44 AM »
My gorgeous new addition to the Seguso collection  :sun:. It is 13.5cm high by 15.5cm in length. It is alexandrite/neodymium glass. I will take some pics of the colour change when I have the correct lighting conditions. It has the 'Seguso Murano Made In Italy' red and white paper label. It weighs a hefty 2.1kg. Added here for reference.

I was shocked when I put it on the kitchen scales and it crept over the 2 kilo mark. Do you have pics of your piece Max?
