Drioli Bottle...Green & Amber...
« on: December 18, 2009, 09:43:26 AM »
Thought i would put this up before my road trip for two weeks...

Green & Amber Drioli Bottle. 20.5cms tall, just over 7cm wide & a little 5cm in width. The tax label reads, on outside 'U.S Inter. Rev., Tax Paid'; middle 'Charles Morgenstern ... Inc., Freeport N...' and at the ends 'Less Than 1/2 Pint'. Not enough for me!

Is a creme de menthe. Not my cup of tea. I did pay more than i wanted, but i am thoroughly  :chky: excited!  :thup:

Some beautiful pieces, thanks Anne. The Green & Amber fish is SUPERB! Have been looking for a fish for years. That would be the one!

Drioloi didn't make they bottles. They had them made for them and then filled them

I am sure you all know that A.Seguso made a lot of these bottles. In fact I watched this one and it got too much for my retirement funds to cope with.

Well done it is gorgeous.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

Thanks for the extra information Ardy. I have feeling it is indeed a A. Seguso piece. It truly is a beautiful bottle. Went a bit over my allocation for it but its not like I am going to sell it anytime soon.  ;D
