The most beautiful hand-blown Majorcan glass vase - with an amazing openwork throat, such beautiful lines that can only be seen in handmade products!
Glass produced in Majorca, "Glass from Majorca" as a brand has a very high reputation and a long tradition. The art of working with glass was introduced to Majorca by the Phoenicians around the second century BC. Local artisans improved their skills in the time of the Greeks and Carthaginians. In the XVI-XVII centuries, during the heyday of work with glass by Venetian masters, majorquins borrowed their techniques and methods of work. By the eighteenth century Majorcan artisans had achieved perfection in the production of glass. The most striking example was the highly artistic works produced at the Can Gordiola factory, which operates and preserves the old traditions to this day.
Lamps, vases, bottles and other glass products produced by Gordiola are characterized by smooth shapes and exclusive, amazing colors: turquoise, green, purple. They are considered real jewelry and works of art.
Our vase is closer to the middle of the last century.
Purchased at an antique market in Spain.
The condition is good -there are a couple of visors in the glass, evidence of manual blowing.
