Stripy Fratelli

Sometimes it's all about standing out in a crowd - like this stunning cobalt and white confection from the 1950s. Created in Murano by Fratelli Toso, this stopper bottle has a playful, circus-like, quality...a popular look in the mid-century. Personally, I love how the pattern in the glass accentuates the glass blowing process. You can see the piece being stretched into shape while still molten, and as it cools, the design is set for eternity.
