These petite triangular dishes are accentuated by a milky white scalloping pattern with gold flecks. This type of thick Murano glass in which the color is layered within the clear glass is known as vetro sommerso. The technique was developed in the 1930s by submerging different layers of glass (often of different colors) throughout the glassmaking process, resulting in beautiful effects.
