About

Very good conditions. This object is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any object in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork. Carlo Scarpa (Venice, 2 June 1906 - Sendai, 28 November 1978). One of the lesser-known - but no less significant - aspects of the design activity of Carlo Scarpa, a well-known architect, and designer, was his work as artistic director at some of the most prestigious Murano glass brands, such as Cappellini and Venini. In fact, at the Venini Scarpa, in the mid-1930s, he began designing the first glasses where he tied traditional Murano techniques, such as filigree and murrine, to very simple geometric shapes, giving life to unique specimens like the small green cup. At the Venice Biennale of 1940, an entire room was dedicated to the glasses designed by Scarpa whose influence will be felt on the Venini production, even after its exit from the glassworks.
