Italy Label--STELVIA--HELP with more information
« on: August 13, 2005, 04:19:50 AM »
I have this vase that has original sticker.  Is it Venetian Glass?  Sticker says Stelvia Made in Italy, and Fatto A Mano (I think this means made by hand).  Also is Stelvia an area in Italy (like Murano is)??  Does anyone know artist, date, possible book value.  Thanks, as I have never posted on board before.... :o   How would one describe this vase???

Goodness - I have your vase's elder twin sisters - taller and slimmer and slightly brighter colour, but unmistakably related!
