Designed in 1969, inspired by nature. see it at: http://www.bigashtray.com/product/mid-century-art-glass-ashtray-by-blenko/

Blenko Art Glass part no. 693. Truly retro from the “Peace & Love” generation. Hand formed with irregular peaks and valleys on the base giving an illusion of organic material. Grass green color darkens and lightens with the thickness of the glass and the lighting. Looks like stream moss. Perfect patio ashtray. Has two 2″ long, level cradle rests. Works well for cigars (cigar shown in image is 6″ long), spliffs, or candles / incense. Very heavy. Weighs almost 2 lbs, measures 7.25″ long, 6.5″ at widest and 1.75″ tall.

Set of 19 retro mod orange crystal goblets by Carlo Moretti, Italy.  Circa 1959 to mid 1960s. 

Hand blown with applied stems.  Featuring the velvety soft Satinato finish Moretti is famous for. The glass is top quality leaded crystal.

We describe the color as ‘Tangerine’, a semi-opaque vivid orange that glows when the light shines through.  Mesmerizing color, very popular among the very mod in the 1960s. 

It is difficult to find the Satinato finish without wear due to use and inappropriate cleaning methods.  They are NOT dishwasher safe.  The finish is durable, but it cannot withstand high heat or heavy scrubbing.  ALL goblets in the set have NO damage to the Satinato.  18 are without chips, 1 dessert/champagne goblet has a very small sliver chip on the rim.  All have rings of bottom-wear on the base due to surface contact over the past 50 years.  The ring can be seen only when looking very closely and is not considered damage.

Set includes (8) Champagne/Dessert, (6) Wine, and (5) Water/Ice Tea goblets.  Very rare to find a large set still together and in such fine shape, especially in this color.

The goblets are heavy due to the fine quality glass.  Water goblets measure 7” tall, with a 3.5” wide mouth and weigh just under 1lb each.  The wine glasses are 5.5” tall, 2.5” wide mouth and weigh just under 1/2lb.  The champagne goblets stand 4.5” tall with a 4.25” wide mouth and weigh just over 1/2 lb.
