Scavo Murano Glass Duck of the 1950s

Scavo Murano Glass Duck of the 1950s

This Murano glass duck with spread wings in red scavo finish was completely handmade. This duck was made in the late 1950s probably by the historical glass-factory Gino Cenedese e Figlio, famous for the use of the “scavo” technique, which was first introduced at Cenedese in the late 1940s and then developed through the years, and still distinguishes the company production among other glass producers. The duck’s body – as well as its bill and feet – is made of red glass, while the wings and standing base are clear; the scavo finish, with its matte patina and dark spots, makes this piece unique. The scavo finish is meant to resemble the excavation of archeological remains: the glass surface, coarse to the touch, is the result of the application of salts and oxidants scattered on the hot glass. This glass sculpture is in perfect condition, it is not marked.
