Ecrin Lidded Vessel Wide
by Sebastian Herkner
Part of the NUDE Ecrin series designed by Sebastian Herkner, this medium-sized container offers an elevated sense of sophistication and elegance. Hand-crafted from crystalline glass, this precious piece stands out with its commanding, heavy base, a curved profile and a colour-infused lid, which recalls the shape of the Ritten rock formations – an impressive natural monument in South Tyrol.
The mastery and craftsmanship of handmade glass is a signature of NUDE.
NUDE prides itself in its artisanal approach to glassware, specializing in handmade, pure crystalline glass, be the pieces blown or press-blown. With their Master blowers, NUDE continues to hand
make much of the world’s most acclaimed glassware.
We recommend washing this product by hand using a soft sponge, brush or by hand.
Please avoid using the scourer side of the sponge as it will create scratching on the surface of the glass.
After hand washing let the product dry. Finish cleaning by drying and polishing the product using a soft cloth, preferably micro fiber.
