Vetreria Alfredo Barbini Italy

Sold! (approx. € EUR / $ USD)

Exceptional, and exceptionally large, decanter of doppio incalmo construction - a complex glassmaking technique in which three hemispheres of glass of identical diameter are joined together whilst semi-molten and are worked into a single vessel, designed around 1970 by Alfredo Barbini, for his own glassworks Vetreria Alfredo Barbini, Murano.

The decanter comprises sections of a deep cobalt blue and a bright blue-green, separated by a band of clear glass. It, along with the cobalt stopper, has been further case in a layer of clear glass, making the glass very thick and heavy.

Bears original factory label, and is hand-engraved with 'Barbini Murano' near the base.
