This beautiful work of Modernist art glass has been crafted using the Murano technique of Filigrana and has been shaped into the form commonly known as the 'Love Knot'. The association of knots with the symbolism of love, friendship and affection dates back to antiquity.

The technique Filigrana (Literal translation 'Filigree glass' in Italian) often features white coloured canes but sometimes multicolour too, as it is in this instance. The Filigrana style originated on the island of Murano in the 16th century and spread rapidly to other parts of Europe where façon de Venise glass was produced. Manufacture on Murano continued until the 18th century, and it was revived in the 20th century.

Though the Filigrana technique can be in applied using multicoloured canes, it has not been possible to trace another example of Filigrana applied into the Love Knot form. There are a few inclusions (bubbles) in the creation of this piece but despite this, the overall execution of the piece is beautifully balanced and an excellent canvas for light refraction. The colour palette bears a vibrant Cerulean blue, Scarlet red, Lemon yellow and Snow white.

CONDITION
