Web Description: 
This Veronese vase echoes the glass vessels depicted in the Annunciation to the Virgin, Paolo Veronese’s painting in the Galleria dell’Accademia, Venice. Trained as a painter, Zecchin gave form to the radical ideas of the glassworks’ founders, Paolo Venini and Giacomo Cappellin. Inspired by the Italian Renaissance, Zecchin’s designs have become icons of the modern style.
