Another Murano Mystery
...or perhaps Empoli?
One thing is clear. The Alrose label is not a factory as much as an importer (likely British or an American attempt at Anglophilia) of Italian glass for the mid-century masses. This is a fantastic example of their swirly signature look. Over 2 feet tall with a bulbous stopper which inversely mimics the bottle shape.

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog daily... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
