We are offering a vintage Murano glass pegasus statue, measuring about 12” high 8.5" wide and 6” long. This piece is a beautiful clear glass with 24k gold leaf inclusions in the mane, tail, wings, and hooves, and depicts a pegasus rearing back on its hind legs.
Archimede Seguso (born 1909– died 1999) was one of the 20th century’s master Venetian glassmakers. He was a key figure in the survival and revival of traditional glassblowing techniques in Murano, Italy. Original in his designs yet consistently mindful of the legacy of glassmaking, Seguso crafted a timelessly tantalizing array of glass pieces throughout his career.
In addition to his participation in 13 appearances in the Venice Biennale between 1936 and 1972, Archimide Seguso was also invited to participate in the exhibit “A Thousand Years of Glass in Venice” at the Museo Correr in 1982, and he had a solo exhibit of his work at Tiffany & Co. in New York in 1989.
This piece is the perfect addition to any collection.
Excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
