Description

This vase gives me the same feeling as eating a perfectly ripe strawberry: it's so unbelievable delicious it makes you smile! Tangerine, fire red & lava orange, the faceted internal design creates an optical, shimmering effect that makes this vase sparkle, a photograph can never do it justice, this little firecracker has to be seen near a window where it can truly perform.

This is a vibrant vintage optic glass vase made by Italian Empoli, the colour/design being 'Amberina'. It has the delicate, quality feel and beautifully finished rim that is so typical of their creations although its sticker has vanished long ago. I have seen very similar large goblet-style glasses from Empoli but not a vase quite like this one so I think it is unusual and possibly quite collectable, especially considering its excellent condition.

I have added some Crocosmia 'Lucifer' to the vase in the photo and it makes a glorious statement piece but I think it will look fantastic with any or no flowers in it.
