Fulvio Bianconi for Venini 1978 "Gallina" Italian Murano Art Glass Chicken
An Italian Murano art glass chicken produced by Venini after a design by Italian artist Fulvio Bianconi (1916-1996). Starting out as a graphic designer, Bianconi's work as a glass artist began when after World War II he traveled to Murano to collaborate with Paulo Venini over the production of perfume bottles. This partnership started Bianconi's art glass designs and he went on to freelance for other Murano art glass makers as well.
Marked "Venini '78" to the underside, this glass hen, or gallina, has a white lattimo body with polychrome accents.
Sculpture, 5" x 7.25" x 7.5".
