Tall Mid+century Vintage Empoli Amethyst Cased Glass Decanter
This gorgeous hand blown Mid-Century Italian/Empoli Cased Glass decanter with a dual-tone circus tent spiral pattern in AMETHYST and clear glass stopper stands 23 tall and is in MINTY condition, with age-appropriate light wear on base. Italian cased glass (mostly from the Empoli region of Italy although many had their origins in Murano) can generally be divided into early and latter period pieces. The earlier pieces, from the 1950s and 1960s, tended to be thicker, heavier, and more substantial, whereas those made in the 1970s (due to the energy crisis, the resultant global economic upheaval, and the need to cut costs) were thinner, and lighter-weight. While their modern design and intense colors have caused all mid-century Italian hand-blown cased glass to appreciate sharply over the last couple of decades, the older more substantial pieces (like this beautiful decanter) remain amongst the most collectable.
