Pair of Optical Glass Stones by Alfredo Barbini

These optical glass stones are created by the Italian glass artist Alfredo Barbini in his workshop in Murano, Venice. They can be dated in the 1950s.
One stone is made of scavo glass, a process of acid washes over the glass has create a matt finish, like a natural stone. Barbini has polished an ‘eye’ on it, so you can look into the center of the glass, it is amazing.
