Large Vase
« on: February 25, 2008, 07:56:27 PM »
Hi Everyone
                 Just another one of my blue things i just seem to be attracted to blue glass, or is it that a lot of glass makers favour blue?.
Would this be modern day or from the 60s era and is it true blue or torqise? please take a look any comments appreciated,

My feeling would be modern/recent Italian - possibly Empoli area, but Ivo may be able to confirm.

I agree with Anne, probably mainland Italy. I have a similar amber vase, optic ribbed and with the same rim treatment which I've always thought to be Italian.
