Description

A stunning 1970's green glass jug / pitcher with wicker decoration, 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.

Size

Measures approx 7.75 inches tall by 5.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a couple of surface scratches to the handle, shown in final picture.

Also worth menitoning, the glass was initially quite grubby, I've cleaned the inside, and cleaned around the wicker as best I can, but couldn't give it a proper soak as I'm not sure what happens to the wicker when wet! The wicker itself is clean, it just makes the glass behind it a bit hard to get to.
