Web Description: 
Such thinly blown glasses with filigree decoration, which recall the shallow drinking tazzas favored in Italy, are typical of Catalan glass production in Venetian style. Since the late middle ages, Catalonia had a prominent tradition in glassmaking. It was influenced by Islamic glass, and later, since the early 15th century, by the example of Renaissance Venice.
