Alrose Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

<< Back to Encyclopedia Home Page

Several of the pieces below (the large decanters + vases) are attributed to Alrose in Leslie Pina's book Italian Glass: Century 20. They can often be found with small red "Italian Glass" labels, commonly found on glassware made in the Empoli region of Italy. It is now known that Alrose is not the manufacturer, but an importer of Italian glass + pottery. A quick search for "Alrose" on eBay usually results in several items of glassware + pottery, often bearing labels which read "An Alrose Original, Made in Italy". As most labelled examples turn up in the USA, it is assumed that Alrose was an American importer. The same items can sometimes be found in the UK with George Hardy import labels (British importer).
