These optical scavo glass stones are created by the Italian glass artist Alfredo Barbini in his workshop in Murano, Venice. They can be dated in the 1950s. Scavo glass is made in a process of acid washes over the glass to 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. These special glass stones are in very good condition. At first glance, they look like ordinary stones, but suddenly you notice that it is a wonderful art object.
