SOLD

  • Very scarce V Nason & Company Murano art glass wine decanter with original box and literature.
  • The artist, Vincenzo Nason, trained at the reknown Venini glass works in Italy. V Nason & Co. (VNC) was the last incarnation of the Nason family glass making companies, established in 1989 and no longer in business today. 
  • This stunner has the original label (V.Nason&C Murano Italy), box, literature, and is permanently engraved near the base with 'V Nason'.
  • The box bears a colorful label with little known examples of other VNC art glass items.  The box alone is a collectible item.  Very little is known about the late VNC and it's products.
  • Included is the original literature from VNC.  It congratulates the owner of this fabulous decanter and states the Nason family has created glass art in Murano since the 13th Century and produced home articles and tableware since 1936. (click to enlarge image 5 below - use your back arrow to return to this page).
  • As far as we can tell, this is the first documentation of this modernist style decanter.  The line was called L'oggetto, design & emozione (emotion). L'oggetto means 'the object'. Translated to English: "The Object, Design and Emotion".
  • The body is amethyst and the cup stopper is ruby red. The stopper box is stamped with '540 Rosso' (rosso translates to 'red' see image 3).  The stylized stopper doubles as a bottoms-up wine glass. 
  • Hand-made, hand-blown.  Stands 13" tall on a 6.25" wide base.  In perfect condition. Probably made in 1989-1990. VERY scarce item.
