FM Konstglas 24k Gold Bullicante Art Crystal Apple, 1960s-70s
PLEASE NOTE: This item is only available exclusively for pickup at our Oakville location.
This luxuriant work of Swedish art crystal, handblown in c. 2,400°F / 1,300°C was crafted using the Bullicante ('Controlled Bubble') art glass technique by the Marcolin brothers for their art glass studio FM Konstglas (1961-1991) in Ronneby, Sweden.
Made famous in the 1930s by Archimede Seguso, the Bullicante technique involves overlaying several layers of air bubbles in a net pattern inside a piece. In solid crystal, this piece celebrates the exquisite precision of the Bullicante technique with the delicately encasing net pattern over a core layer of 24-karat gold. Being handblown works of art, every piece is finished with its own slightly unique accent of hand-worked leaf and stem detailing.
This exceptional work is timelessly Modern yet luxurious in style and brings with it an elevated yet glamorous simplicity.
