Having trouble getting an id on this - any ideas???????
« on: August 10, 2004, 07:54:14 AM »
My MIL gave me these pieces and I can't find any information on them.  Does anyone have any ideas??????  The pitcher is 11" tall.  I have mugs (?) to go with it - they are 5 1/4" tall..
Thanks for helping......  http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v325/wejude/DSCF0767.jpg

The pitcher may be Empoli (bottle green glass from Empoli, near Florence done in the 50s-60s) - but the pontil is unfinished which is not typical and the handle seems to be fashioned from a hollow rod - also untypical. The glasses have nothing to do with the pitcher - nothing at all.

THANKS for responding.  You are correct about the pontil.  Curious to see if anyone else has any ideas.  Thanks again..... :)

Ooops.....Didn't mean to give the impression that I thought the etched tumblers went with the pitcher......  I should have explained myself better - sorry.........I meant to say that I have green mugs (I have listing a picture of them below) that go with the green pitcher.  I also am having trouble finding information on the etched tumblers pictured with the pitcher.  Thanks again for any help.......

the mugs look very Empoli, too.
