No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

I've found the Nipple, or something like it! Alrose?
« on: October 11, 2005, 03:56:31 PM »
I've just stumbled on an "EMPOLI Italian Art Glass Decanter" on ebay and it has a nipple on the base!  :)

Ebay Item number: 7356470258

Anne E. B. has a decanter with a nipple on the base so perhaps they are made by the same company.

A picture of Anne E. B.'s decanter can be found at the bottom of the page of this link.

I haven't actually seen Anne's decanter (just the base) so I can't compare it.  :)

Thanks Tigerchips :P   Haven't checked out the eBay one, but here's my decanter shown on the left.  http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/blenko.jpg

The eBay decanter is here
cgi.ebay.co.uk/EMPOLI-Italian-Art-Glass-Decanter_W0QQitemZ7356470258QQcategoryZ994QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Looks different in shape but it has the nipple and the same decoration.

Anne, your decanter is an Empoli decanter or Empoli copied it from some other glass maker.
