Stylish Ermanno Toso design for Fratelli Toso - triangular bowl with murrines
This is one we've held onto since 2006 as a particularly fine example of this style, but the time has come to let it go. Other examples in this style have a mix of murrines (slices of glass cane) of lots of different flower patterns but this one has only two patterns (and you have to look closely to see that it's not just one pattern). It's like a "designed" garden with a consistent theme (as opposed to the more haphazard and less successful garden that most of us end up with).
It's unlabelled but the same design is in Leslie Pina's excellent 2004 book, Fratelli Toso: Italian Glass 1854-1980 and is described as a design of Ermanno Toso. After the slices of glass are placed randomly on the flat white glass base, the bowl is formed and the stretching of the hot glass deforms the murrines to some degree. Our example is superior to Pina's, in my opinion, in that the murrines are cleaner and sharper.
The LAST IMAGE is a scan of Pina's example.
