Vistosi Blues

For 500 years the Vistosi family of Venice have been producing some of the most beautiful glass in the world. Today they are mostly known for their chic Murano glass lighting.
Some time in the 1960s these two 8.5 inch decanters were sold to a gift shop in Belgium where they remained in their original packaging until the shop went out of business and one of my contacts over there was able to purchase them.
 Here they are seeing the light of day for the first time in 50 years and looking for a new home, as beautiful as the day they were made.
