Title: Nason Uranium Sommerso Dolphin.
Post by: NevB on July 16, 2021, 01:31:48 PM
This is signed V Nason on the bottom of the mouth. It is almost chameleon like as the colour changes from clear to clear/green/blue according to the light. It did surprise me to find it has a strong glow under UV and I wonder how many of the numerous ones online also contain uranium.

I like Nason and his work is undervalued as I stated on the post re Moretti.
If you like him there are some lovely vases out there for very little money and will display well.

Thanks ardy, my main collection is uranium glass so if I see a piece of Murano uranium glass at a reasonable price I usually buy it. I also have an unsigned duck and lampwork horse which I think are probably by Nason.
