Venetian Filigrana Glass Vase

 The pear-shaped body of this Venetian vase is fashioned with two styles of filigrana retortoli canes. The straight neck may have had a lid.  The vessel is decorated with clear glass wing handles, single center trail and ring foot also of clear glass.  A similar object is in the collection in the Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen.
