Who is the geezer with the tipple?
« on: April 03, 2014, 01:21:52 PM »
Bust bottle with "made in Italy" on the bottom - probably from Vetreria Etrusca in Empoli.  No Euro nonsense like conformity, contents or a makers mark - so probably 40 or 50 years old.

Question is, who is it?

We think he may be Giuseppe Verdi even if he has a knotted handkerchief around his neck. Or is he Garibaldi?
Furter suggestions are welcome.

Looks more like Garibaldi than Verdi, ;D
