Venetian Cristallo Glass Wine

Venetian Cristallo Glass Wine

This wine is made of a Cristallo glass. It has a trumpet-shape bowl with a broad mouth resting on a collar with a thin hollow baluster stem and flat circular foot.  Cristallo is a type of soda glass developed in Venice before the 15th century.  It was made almost colourless, pale-yellow to smoky gray, so it would resemble Rock-Crystal which is natural quartz or pure silica.

 H: 17cm

C: 1600
