Italian Coffee cups - Marker? - ID = Fidenza Vetraria
« on: October 23, 2011, 07:53:11 PM »
I picked these Italian demitasse cups in a charity shop.

Each shows a scene of Venice (Venezia) and raised impression on the base of each states ITALY.

Anyone know the maker?

Fidenza Vetraria.

Dunno if decorated the item too....i would like to see the packaging.
Anyway it's the Virna pressed glass.
Fidenza produced this item for the standard catalogue until the 1970.... Then maybe sold as special item with the three colors the adopted during the second part of the 70's....Green, light blue and a brown fumè.
Nice item.
