Description

It is a beautiful glass scorpion hand made by Stefano Della Valentina. Dimensions are H 69 x B 26 x p 26, material is retro di Murano, or Murano glass. It comes with a beautiful stand that it rests on. The base size is 26 cm by 69 cm. I have the original brochure and papers of authenticity. I bought it on Murano in the factory and low-key down stairs collector spot when I visited Italy this summer. I would love to put it in better hands it doest have a proper home and I'm moving soon and don't want to risk breaking it, its too beautiful. Hope to hear soon. Thank you

Provenance

I'm the one soul owner. I bought it straight from the dealer at the factory where they blow the glass sculptures

Hi Jake,
You're all set. The auction market for contemporary Murano is considerably softer than the retail market.
