bottle green vase - ID = Empoli verde
« on: January 04, 2012, 08:17:56 PM »
the shape made me think of Scandi., but there's no clear casing, although the rim is fire polished  -  poor quality ground pontil, and some wear that might indicate reasonable age.    Substantial stone/dirt grains in the glass, so overall not a quality piece, and height is about 10.5"/270mm.     I suspect not a lot of mileage in this one, but someone may have an idea of origins, and thanks for looking. :)

wow - thanks for a very speedy id Ivo.       Regret I am totally ignorant regarding mid C20 Italian glass  -  however, I will now research and learn a little more.    Thanks again :)
