Description

Here is a wonderful massive 1950/60's Italian bulbous glass decanter/gurgle bottle, made in the Italian region of Empoli. Similar pieces are attributed to Alrose 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 (white) stopper. A fabulous item, in a wonderful shape, it catches the light beautifully. Would make an excellent display piece.

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.
