Beykoz Opaline Pitcher

beykoz opaline water pitcher
Beykoz, Istanbul was once the heart of glass industry. Many artisans learned their craft in this area and later in the 20th century a glass factory was built at the same place. This Beykoz opaline long-spouted water pitcher of 19th century is one of the sweetest pieces one can find. Pity, I was unable to find a quality picture.

Height: 23 cm
Estimated value: unknown
