  • The KB Italian Glass sticker tells us that this big beauty was imported from Italy during the 1960s to 1970s.  The 'Koscherak Brothers', established in 1887, brought huge amounts of Italian art glass to New York for distribution in the United States.  Although the export glass art was never signed by the original artists or glass houses, many were designed by well-known mid-century Italian Masters such as Fratelli Toso and Barbini.  The 'KB' sticker has been found coupled with A.VE.M. s(Arte Vetraria Muranese) sticker, a well-known Italian luxury glass maker.
  • Made by hand. Weighs 2 lbs.  Stands 3½" tall and 3" wide.  Has multiple tiny trapped air bubbles within the spirals and one larger elongated bubbles as shown in upper right of image 2.  No damage. Very light bottom-wear.
