This outstanding hand blown stemware service was made by Salviati ca. 1920's and features the incredibly difficult technique fine concentric circular bands of gold leaf. Not aventurine, this is 22kt gold! The master glass artist from Venice/Murano Lino Tagliapietra explained to me in detail that is one of the most difficult glassblowing techniques and this set is one of the finest he has ever seen! In his words... "To create this pattern with incredible consistency and detail is the work of a master"!
The best part of the large and complete set is that it works with many styles and colors as the gold becoms a neutral palette and complements any setting. With 70 pieces to work with, it's ready for a back bar as well as the table settings. Please review the dimensions as every pieces is functional and fitting.
Made in Italy ca. 1920's all in excellent condition.
