The company have been producing glass from as early as the 1950s, prolific in the 1960s and 1970s with a fantastic range of vases, centrepieces and art pieces, found in a variety of styles.

A gorgeous orangey-red centrepiece, in a style, with its ribbed undersides and elongated shape, is a known model of the company.
Measuring 19cm tall, 46.5cm long and 15cm wide, this piece in great to excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or major scratches. There are some bubbles in the glass from manufacturing and some light surface scratches, mainly towards the base; expected and seen often in these types of pieces.
