My husband's mother & father had what I consider to be very good taste. They spent a large part of the 1950's and 1960's traveling the world, especially spending time in Europe, and had many lovely things from their travels. When my mother-in-law passed away recently, these two Venini pieces came to our family, along with a bowl in the same style. These bottles are Italian Murano and were made by Paolo Venini; the bottles date to 1955. The term 'Inciso' refers to a technique in which glass is wheel-carved with fine, horizontal lines. I tried to show some of the texture of this in image 2. The taller blue vase is 12-1/4" tall, and the amber vase is 7-1/4" tall. My brother-in-law's family has the two other Venini bottles from the family, and I think they are a very nice remembrance of two lovely people.
