Description

Here is a wonderful massive 1960's Italian bulbous glass decorative bottle, made in the Italian region of Empoli. Made by Cristalleria Artistica Toscana (C.A.T.). Similar pieces are attributed to Alrose (an American importer) in the book "Italian Glass" by Leslie Pina, on page 117. Made in orangey red, white and clear glass stripes, with a large fluted lattimo (opaque white) stopper.

Size

Measures approx 12 inches tall by 7.75 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

There is some chipping to the very tip of the stopper, and some nibbles to the inside rim, and also near the base, as well as some surface scratches to the side of the lowest bulbous section, all shown in final pictures. For accuracy, there are some faint swirly lines in the glass from the manufacturing process, which I couldn't capture on camera.
