The Perks of Vintage Glass
Italian Empoli Blown Glass Tri-Corner Decanter
Stands 20½” tall.  Handblown vintage Italian Eames era glass in perfect condition.
This extra-tall decanter was made in the late 1950s to 1960s by Empoli of Italy. 
The decanter is 3-sided, not round.  Side one measures 5½” wide, side two measures 5” wide, and side 3 measures 4.5” wide. Widest girth (circumference) is 16.5”.  Stands 20½” tall with stopper.  Hollow blown original stopper is just over 7” long. 
Mossy color and organic mod decor, includubg intentional elongated spiraling bubbles.  The base is inverted with the pontil mark ground.  The stopper was made in two parts and applied together at the stopper disk.
Sparkling clean.  Appears to have never held liquid, although back in the day people would use these big beverage decanters as they were meant to be used.    If liquid is used in a decanter like this, it is very important to dry the interior of the bottle thoroughly after use to prevent liquid staining.
