I feel bad I waited so long to review this!! Etsy made me wait for a month after (my assumption is that they believed it would take longer to get delivered when it came in less than 2 weeks to the USA). It's beautiful and well made. The seller was very responsive and checked in when it was delivered. I wouldn't hesitate to shop here again.

Unbelievably beautiful. No photo can do justice to the quality of the work. It was not exactly as described, it was better! I measured when I ordered it, but it was larger than I expected. I am thrilled with this purchase and will absolutely buy again and again from this shop.

I needed to order a gift from Australia to be sent to Italy. Anna was so helpful. She was in constant contact and so helpful, she made ordering from the other side of the world so easy. The glasses were breathtaking - a perfect wedding gift.

Exceeded every expectation that I had - a lovely shop to work with. Anna & Claudia helped me customize a pair of wedding flutes off of a little inspiration that I gave them. Very quick and easy communication throughout the entire process with several different and creative directions I could choose between. When I received the glasses, they were even more beautiful than I hoped and packaged beautifully and safely for their travels.

Those mugs are everything i hoped for. Communication was amazing and the product was made and sent off quickly. Very secure packaging, too.

I searched for a European company to gift Champagne flutes from a US relative....this gift left us elated. I placed the order as a basic flute. The owner emailed me if I wanted anything further. When I explained it was for a 50th anniversary, she sent me three different options! Communication was simple. She sent me pictures of how the actual gift was sent out. It was delivered on time. The gift was happily received by the couple in Salerno. As soon as I receive a picture, I will update....I would easily shop here again!! Excellent customer service, beautiful gifts...all in all - a pleasure to shop!

I highly recommend this shop.
I found a great courtesy, competence and professionalism, as well as a great speed.
I requested advice on a customization on January 25th and immediately received a very courteous response. They made three drafts of the project for me and with great availability they adhered to my request for modification.
They kept me updated on the realization of the project and on January 29 I had already been delivered by courier my cup, more beautiful than I had imagined.
I spend one last word on the really accurate and well-kept packaging.
EN. A short video, just to get a look at how we work.
As you can see, our job is 100% HANDMADE!
Something more about Anima del Bosco
"Anima del Bosco" is, of course, an Italian name...We can traslate it in English into "Soul of the Forest".
But why I've called my Lab "Anima del Bosco"? Sand, fire, water: as a result of the fusion of these elements, GLASS is obtained...Glass, the secret soul of the forest!
I'm Anna ad the history of the glass, is tightly connetted to the story of my mother's family.
I was only a little girl when my aunt Mary, in the evening, used to tell me a lot of old stories...But these were not fairy tales! Aunt Mary's stories were about the history of glass and the very ancient Glassmakers Families.
The brightness of the glass, has always fascinated me, and, predictably, captured me.
Maybe it's because working with glass, reminds me to those magic tales, and bring me back to my childhood, when I saw several times, in my aunt's eyes the pride to belonging to a millenary and important history!
My mother's grandmother was Metilde Bormioli. Metilde Bormioli was born and lived in Altare, a small village of the Italian region called Liguria.
If you don't know the importance of Altare in the history of the Glass Art, check on Internet! You will found a lot of interesting things!
Bormioli's Family , with other families, always connected to the Glass Art, began to take possession of the Techincal Foundatios of the Art Glass around the year 1000. Just at that time, in the small village of Altare, was created one of the most important Glass Makers community in the Europe!
Even today, "Altare" and "Bormioli", are synonyms of Glass.
Our Lab is located in Cairo Montenotte, a small Medieval town, in the same territorial reality of Altare. To be exact, Cairo Montenotte is a few miles from Altare.
For about three years Claudia works with me in Anima del Bosco. She approcheated with great interest to the glass engraving. The union of our stiles, our personal preferences and different sensitivities, allow us to have always new creative ideas!

We have a lot of articles completely custumizable. You can found them reading the description. If you want, we can also send a grafic project before engraving your artifact! Please, send us a message or contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Why do you have the need to understand if my custumized order is doable?
Well, that's a good question! Let us explain this point to you.
We can engrave a lot of different font, drawings, we can realize portraits starting from a pictures...We can do a lot of things.
But some drawings, some people, some logos and symbols are subject to copyright.
We cant't and we don't want to violate copyrights and rights of publicity.
In addiction, for our choice, we prefer to avoid engraving subjects markedly political and religious themed.
Do you work only with glass?
We work with glass, crystal and mirrors.
At this time we prefer to avoid engraving other things, thank you!
Can I ask a red, a yellow, or an other colour engraving?
No, we are sorry but you can't. As a result of the work of the diamond burr on glass, the engraving is always white.
If you like brilliant colours, you can choose a coloured glass! The contrast between the colour of the glass, and the white of the engraving is amazing!
