Dattero blown glass vase is inspired by the iconography of the popular date fruit, with its exquisite shades of amber and its uneven texture. Every vase is a unique piece created using the mouth-blowing technique on the island of Murano. Rome meet Venice for a homage to the Middle East.

This piece is also available in a medium size (h. 15 cm – limited edition of 10) and a small size (h. 11 cm – limited edition of 10).
The date motif was one of the most elegant in the Ancient Roman vetreria (glassmaking). The symbolism imbued in it, of luxury and exoticism, as well as the intense colour of its pulp, resembling the golden light of the Middle East, are perhaps the elements that made it so popular within the artistic world.
Through the Roman furnaces, it assumed a particular iconographic role, where it was converted into a refined container for balms and precious ointments, sophisticated alternates for those small fruits, which were commonly donated in the capital as auspicious gifts on New Year’s Day.
