BICCHIERE AMETISTA T202
This glass is a custom-made production of our T202 tumbler, part of #TEMPOCOLLECTION, presented during Milan Design Week 2017. It has been produced in amethyst colour exclusively for FourSeasons Hotel Firenze. Each glass has been blown by mouth by our master glass blower in Murano island.


Ametista is a traditional colour coming from Murano glassmaking heritage. 

The amethyst internal core of the glass (pea) is soacked in Murano crystal, like a protective shell. The crystal layer confers more practicality and strength to the internal glass. The irregular surface of the crystal, which is modelled by hand after being blowed in a wood mold, recreates lavish and elegant shades and glows. Being the texture different for each glass, each one is a unique object.
Bicchiere Ametista T202 are used daily by chef Vito Mollica at Michelin-starred restaurant Il Palagio.
