Huge art glass piece, need your help identifying.
« on: April 18, 2011, 07:01:31 PM »
 Hi! I'm Exquisite and I have this huge piece of art glass and I don't know a thing about it, can someone of your nice community help me please.  The piece is 18" long, 13 1/4" wide and 13 1/2" tall.  Thanks in advance for your kindness.  I have a few pieces of art glass but unfortunately I don't know a thing about this subject and I'm new on the internet so I need a lot of help.    :rah:

welcome to the show. Your glass is most probably a piece of Empoli Verde, made between 1945 and ca. 1975 by one of several companies in Empoli, near Florence. You can check here http://www.vmglasshouse.com/empoli-verde.htm for other examples.
