Smoked glass covered sugar designed by Joe Colombo for Arno of Italy, circa 1960. It is rare to find this smoked glass brown tinged version of this Italian glassware, let alone one that is hand painted! Each piece has a sleek mid century modernist geometric design with a silhouette that makes the contents in this pressed glass appear suspended above the table surface.
