ID glass shell with partial label
« on: February 11, 2024, 11:31:44 AM »
Hi. I've been trying to identify this piece for a little while now. There is a partial label to the base which is possibly from a retailer, not the maker. Looks like the last word might be Amsterdam and the first possibly Albert? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Nice. I would say it was probably from Murano, possibly Barbini

The label is Albert Jacobs or Jacobsz Amsterdam - which is not a known shop or dealer. Could be a business gift?
Barbini is probable.
