Description

A stunning pair of 1970's green glass vases or tumblers with spikey seed pod design, most likely 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. These don't have the typical ground pontil mark found on most Empoli Verge glassware, but this is probably due to the glass being too thin to grind. Would make a great addition to any collection!
