Simple, practical and playful, this NUDE Toque vase flips the traditional chef’s hat upside down. Formed from pure crystalline glass, the end product presents a tall, wide-bottomed silhouette which works equally as a vessel for flowers as it does as a sculptural piece.
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.
