Description

A stunning 1970's green glass vase with applied spirals and seal/prunt, made by one of the many glass manufacturers based in the region of Empoli, Italy. Faintly marked to base "Made in 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.

Size

Measures approx 10.5 inches tall by 4.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Has a couple of tiny nicks to the rim, and what appears to be a small fracture running down from the rim, possibly caused during the cooling process of manufacturing, as there is no impact mark to the edge. Shown in final picture. Also has a few minor manufacturing flaws, bubbles etc in the glass, common for these items.
