Thanks for that Christine.  I've never seen one of those vases/ewers with an import label before...in fact I've never seen one with any label before!   ^-^ :D

PS Lynne, I've got a little pottery figurine, it's a kneeling figure of a black lady...which I think is for Drioli too.

Hi Max, yes, the kneeling tribal lady is definitely Drioli, the other nice set I like is of jazz musicians - including a very plump singer!

Here is an interesting site featuring the various Drioli miniatures - they reckon that the glass was made for Drioli on Murano, and I would expect that to be right, looking at the colours of the little animals.

I think I may have found your lady on the Drioli site Max - is it this one?

Doh, it had never occurred to me it was a Hardy label   :-[

What fun pieces - would the Drioli bottles be cork-stoppered or left open like carafes?

Anne, most of the Driolis I have had (ceramic) had a little cork bung with either a plastic moulded top, the same as you would find in some commercial liqueur or sherry bottles, or just cork, with a paper and gilt printed seal over the top.

I tell you some of the part used ones are REALLY sticky.....!!!

Anne, looking through this post, it seems to have two distinct threads - could you split out the Drioli please, so it doesn't detract from Cristalclear's vase?

Good idea to separate the topics. Do the Murano Drioli bottles sell very well? (Don't believe the OP's piece is one, btw.)

Luigi Onesto copied some Flavio Poli designs in the 1990/s some carried the Oggeti import label,could this be a possibility.
