Deadstock Discovery

We are so lucky to be in the business of uncovering buried treasure. This fluted opalescent grape colored lidded jar was made in Murano for export in the 1950s. Somehow it never made it out of its original box while en route to a fine New York retailer. During this pre-bubble wrap era, the factories in Venice would protect their goods for Trans-Atlantic travel with what appears to be fine wood shavings.
box measures 6" high
