BABY BLUE SUPER TALL GENIE BOTTLE DECANTER with FLAME STOPPER. WE BELIEVE THIS TO BE MADE BY EMPOLI – VINTAGE ITALIAN GLASS PRODUCERS THIS IS A REAL STUNNER!! REALLY STANDS OUT & IS SURE TO IMPRESS LOOKS ALMOST LUMINESCENT IN CERTAIN LIGHTS. Condition: Overall, still in good condition. As this is hand blown it is inevitable that there may be some imperfections, bubbles etc. We noticed one on the stopper which we have tried to show in the photos. There is chip to the underside of the neck, also shown in the photos, but will not effect the overall incredible look of this item! Possible chip to end of stopper, hard to tell if its just wear & tear. This has been reflected in the price. It should be kept in mind that Empoli is a region where there were many glass companies, not one specific glass company. The great majority of Empoli glass imported during the 1950s-1960s was marked only with relatively generic Made in Italy paper or foil labels. Over time, many of the original labels have fallen off and the majority of Empoli glass in todays market is largely unmarked. It can often be confused with the American glass maker Blenko. There are several ways to separate Italian Empoli glass from American Blenko. First, Empoli glass never has a pontil mark on the base; virtually all Blenko has a pontil. Empoli glass is typically quite thin-walled, not much more than one-eighth of an inch; Blenko generally has thicker walls, usually over one-eighth inch thick. Empoli stoppers and the mouths of the decanters and bottles they fit are smooth, not ground. Size: Width at widest point approx. Please refer to our photos for a detailed view of the piece.
