I agree Adam.  I've also seen identical decanters as mine in a different colour, with the white stripe and same matching stopper.  I believe there's a picture of one in one of Leslie Pina's books ("50s Glass"??? I think).

I was suggesting it could be a mariage because the pressed stopper seems to be identical to the one used on the ubiquitous "Genii" bottle which is from Empoli or the adjacent valley; but it might just as well be a bought-in addition to the blown decanter - there seems to be a discrepancy of techniques between the two.

A bit like a "universal" stopper made to fit different decanters but from the same source :P   I guess that would have been cheaper too to make rather than handblown stoppers?
