Here the photo of another vessel made by 3Fiori at that time.
It is a prototype of a contemporary vase, with a modern shape and change of blowing axe.
Their glassbowing technique was not so perfect and therefore there were some "defects" in the pattern.
Also, the complex murrina design, with such kind of shape develop (big size, change of axe), has lost some of its beauty.
So toghether we decided to apply a good coldwork on it to resolve some of this issues.
At the end the final result wasn't bad, but far to be perfect.
I sold it approx 4-5 years ago.

I suppose that in total they have produced between the 30 and the 50 vases only.
