Deluxe Duo

There are levels of luxury when it comes to collectible glass - and these two are definitely top tier. We have literally been searching for years for a pair of this style Barbini to become available. The striped pattern is part of a collection based on the circus tent. Perhaps the popularity of Pagliacci in Italian culture inspired their design. The graceful lines are quite refined, the heaviness of the glass, the subtlety of the blue color, and the generous amount of gold within all add to the value.
 Made exculsively  for the American market, late 1940s to early 1950s.
26", 20"
