Deadstock Discoveries

One of the most striking things about shopping with us is the sheer number of choices at any one time. People often ask us just how we amass such collections. In most cases, it is a matter of searching high and low and piece by piece, but as in any business, sometimes it's who you know. One such valued source is a dealer we know who acquired, through auction, an entire storage facility filled with never before used (also known as "deadstock" to the trade) vintage Venetian glass. Lucky for us and convenient for the decorator! This grouping of tapered 1950s Italian cased glass vases are from a factory called Balboa.

Tall pieces are 14", Short pieces 11"
