Is this one of those large brandy glasses?
« on: October 06, 2006, 03:08:38 AM »
Hi, I have what is an egg shaped, very large, green, applied stem/base glass. The glass is rather thin on the main body. The pattern is inside. There is some debris in the glass, and air bubbles throughout, however they are not forced. Is it Italian? Polish? what is it? how old is it? who made it? Ivo???

95% sure Italian 1960s from one of the manufacturers in or around Empoli.
