Description

Murano art glass is celebrated for its dynamic forms and bold colours, this elegant offering with its memorable swirling form is no exception. Violet, green and amber coloured glass is formed beautifully into points at the top to create a visually stunning object that will take centre stage in any setting.

J.I Co (Jordan's Importing Co) imported some of the finest Italian art glass into the United States. The company was headed by the very talented Jack Blanco with an Italian partner Spartaco Colelli in Venice, who took care of the manufacturing. Jack opened a high end New York showroom on the corner of 23rd Street and Fifth Avenue which retailed art glass that he designed and also pieces from prominent Italian designers such as Alfredo Barbini and Fratelli Toso.
