Iridescence bulb shaped Soffiato vaseModel no. 1416, with applied multiple handles, close to and around the opening of the fluted mouth of the vase. A technique where the delicately hand blown vessel achieves a thin wall of amethyst colored glass to appear like a Hydria, a container once carried by the ancient Greek women filled with water from the fountains. The vase was designed by the company Pauly & Co formed in 1919. The vessel was created at the glass works of MVM Cappellin a company obsessed with the production of the highest quality. Separating from Vennini 1921, MVM Cappellin & C. based its factories in the Palazzo Da Mula in Murano in 1925.
