In very good condition

Exclusive, rare and valuable antique collectibles.
Venetian bucket/aspergillum from the 16th century (second half of the 1500s).
Items present in several museums in Italy and abroad, made in Murano from the second half of the 15th century until the early 18th century and destined for export, for liturgical or, rarely, for secular use. It was made according to tradition, in colourless Murano blown glass, with special glass wire decorations, obtained using the ‘ice glass’ technique (typical of 16th-century Murano glass artists), embellished with gold highlights, leonine heads and blackberries. Round base with round ‘disc’ foot, typical of the period. Semicircular twisted handle.
Original object dating back to the 16th century (as shown by the decorations with lion heads and blackberries, with gold highlights, typical of the time and the ‘ice glass’ technique, and as stated by any expert who viewed photos of the item), it comes from a private collection and it was purchased from an antique dealer in Tuscany in the late 1980s, along with other highly valuable objects (attached is the purchase contract of the objects with details of their features). Very rare bucket/aspergillum to find on the market, with high and steady value, sold in international important auctions, as shown in photos of similar items found online.
Please look at the pictures, which are an integral part of the description, to fully appreciate the details of the object and decorations, including the lion's heads, where you can see the gold used for highlights, the handle, and the glass wire decorations on the body.
Very good condition and excellent state of preservation, only minor defects due to ageing, like a minor flaking on the handle and one of the two handle loops, which was probably restored before the purchase and fixed to the edge (which is highlighted in the last picture).
Dimensions:
height 16 cm,
height including handle 24 cm,
opening diameter 21 cm,
maximum circumference approx. 85 cm,
base diameter approx. 27 cm,
weight approx. 2 kg.

    Dear Sir
    The description of this item does not correspond at all to the state it is in.
    It is full of extinguishers and has a large crack.
