Label Consciousness

What's in a label? Not only does this foil sticker confirm its origins (Murano) but it indicates that it's attributable to the one and only Alfredo Barbini. Yet, the most interesting revelation is for whom it was made. Weil Ceramics & Glass was an American importer with a tony showroom near 5th Avenue in Manhattan. This fantastic blood-orange colored stoppered bottle would have been made to sell specifically to the U.S. market in the 50's.
