From the same makers of the hugely collectable genie bottles, this glorious shape reflects the 1960s interest in eastern forms. The base and cover rims have the very distinctive Empoli rippled edging. These covered vessels are often used for candy, cotton wool, party favours etc or just displayed for their appealing shape.
Overall, this is a striking and impressive piece of art glass and would be a great addition to any collection.

Overall, I can find nothing of any worth mentioning that detracts from this excellent example and I will be sad to see it go. Please ask if you require any more specific images. All buyers of vintage glassware should expect fair wear, such as marks/fine surface scratches related to its age. This wear often gives buyers confidence in its origin and age.
As many items are handmade, buyers should also expect acceptable imperfections such as bubbles, inclusions/lumps in the glass and tool marks from the making process. All these are seen by collectors as the character of handmade glass and not damage or faults.
As such they are not usually mentioned in the description. However, any chips, bad scratches, bruises, cracks, or faults we regard as being post manufacture, will always be mentioned. Please use all the photos to assess condition. PLEASE NOTE: due to courier's change of terms &conditions, I can no longer send items to an overseas PO BOX address.
