Mouthblown in Tuscany, the Hibiscus Bud Vase comes nestled in VIETRI's signature gift box, complete with straw reminiscent of authentic Italian packaging. Perfect for your best friend's birthday or a thoughtful hostess gift, this piece adds delicate charm to any room or occasion. A mother and her two daughters took a trip to Italy, and their enchantment with Italian dinnerware lead to the creation of VIETRI. A leader in design and craftsmanship, VIETRI complements the American lifestyle and celebrates all that is irresistibly Italian: a love of life, people, nature, and good living. Dishwasher Safe- We recommend using a non-citrus, non-abrasive detergent on the air dry cycle and not overloading the dishwasher. Hand washing is recommended for oversized items. Terra Cotta Earthenware - VIETRI uses natural earthenware clay that is indigenous to Italy. It is the most durable earthenware of the highest quality on the market today, using the best glazes and firing at the highest temperatures. With earthenware clay, we are able to get variations in color and glaze, for which VIETRI is famous, that bring warmth and uniqueness to our products.
