Tall amber pencil neck vase with pontil mark - ID = Empoli
« on: April 18, 2011, 06:28:57 PM »
Any thoughts about this very tall amber pencil neck vase would be much appreciated, seen here with my Carlo Moretti version for interest/comparison.
The amber one seems to be much older, and has a pontil mark on the foot base.  It also has a rounded fire polished rim.  Nice quality and heavier than the CM pictured next to it.
TIA  :)
