The famous tiepoleschi designed by Fulvio Bianconi. Lattimo glass with black accents.
Base and other identifications and references: No label. No signature on the base. The finesse of working indicates that they are made by the same maestro who worked with Bianconi. The collection was inspired by Tiepolo’s paintings and watercolors, in particular the Ca’ Rezzonico fresco of the dancing Pulcinella.
