Delightful blown sodic-calcic glass bottle; it was made by a Murano glass master between 1950 and 1952 who was inspired by an early 18th-century model preserved at the Murano Glass Museum, creating it with the same ancient techniques; from molten glass has blown the body giving it the shape of a bulb with an elongated neck, then while the object was still hot, has applied by hand, using special pliers, quickly and skillfully, some glassy wires as red-hot decorations modeling them to his liking, with the same system has given life to two elegant and soft handles, has then cooled everything with sage slowness and patience. The glass used is not leaded, but it is sodium-calcium or silica glass and it is made up of about 70% silica (silicon dioxide), 15% soda (sodium oxide), and 9% lime (calcium oxide), which the craftsman added as a finishing agent a small amount of iron oxide to give the bottle that very light and pleasant shade of green color. The realization of this object confirms that the Venetian aptitude, celebrated over the centuries, for glass working is an alchemic combination of liquid matter elaborated by artisan intelligence with happy artistic intuitions.
