If there were Olympic medals for glitzy glass, Italy would win gold and silver with these flashy glass creations.
These eye-catching glass forms are by Italian makers, Barovier and Toso. And when it comes to making glass, they've been at it a good while: Barovier founded in 1295.
The large vase in the top picture is a wonderful deep red colour and has gold leaf crackle inclusions. The smaller bowl again is in red but this example has silver inclusions. I have an idea they date from the 1950s. I particularly like the flowing lines and wavy edges.
Barovier and Toso are still going strong today and have a smart website here: Barovier & Toso
