Venetian/Murano glass surged with the focus on Italian crafts in the Monza biennials of 1923, 1925, and 1927. The interest in engraved glass emanated from Scandinavia, and from Austria during the 1925 Paris World’s Fair and in the late 1920s. Black enamel-painted figures appear to be dancing to jazz music in Stella’s rhythmic blue vase, whose color may suggest nightclub light.
