Dazzling large pair of vessels. Not identical in size, one is 2 cm shorter and the taller one is narrower than the other. Hand opened heavy glass with hot iridescence. Hand shaped rosettes in beautiful red solid glass color attached randomly to create a fashionable pattern. Hearsay evidence is that they were made for Fendi Casa. Unique and trendy.
