A very fine and elegant vintage Italian Murano Soffiato brown tinted glass handled jug attributed to MVM Cappellin dating between 1930 and 1950. Typical in style and design of the work of renowned artist Vittorio Zecchin (Italian, 1878 – 1947) the lightly hand-blown jug stands on a wide round foot with stepped rim with a twist design to the stem with pear shaped body narrowing down to the stem. The body narrows into a funnel shaped top with an everted rim and shaped pouring spout. A solid handle with a coiled raised top is attached to the body and top edge. The Jug has a recessed base with a polished pontil mark and is not signed.
