Description

A large and heavy blue & white marbled vase, made in the region of Empoli, near Florence, Italy. Although very similar in form and style to glassware by Vetreria Barbieri (V.B. opaline Florence), this pattern has now been identified as being made by Vetreria Artigiana Sanminiatello (V.A.S.), a glass factory in Montelupo, a few km from Empoli. This information comes from the facebook group Murano Glass/Italian Art Glass, Empoli, for GLGD, in particular a very helpful lady, whose family has been involved in Empoli glass production since the 1950's.

Size

Measures approx 9.75 inches tall by 7.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a small "burst" manufacturing air bubble near the base, that has lost its surface, see final picture.
