Description

A stunning large and heavy (1.6 kilos unpacked) 1970's green glass jug/pitcher, made by one of the many glass manufacturers based in the region of Empoli, Italy. Known as Empoli Verde ("verde" is Italian for "green"), this bottle green glassware takes its name from the traditional green colour of Empoli glass, which was a result of the content of local sand used for glass production. Empoli manufacturers that produced Verge glassware include Vetrerie E. Taddei & C., Vetreria Etrusca, Vetreria Toso Bagnoli, CLAVE, and Vetrerie Empolesi. Would make a great addition to any collection!
