VENTO BOTTLES

Digger Odell Publications 2007

Vento Wine Bottles are modern collectibles that were made  in Italy as collector’s Items for the Vento Wine Company Cleveland Ohio. The greatest popularity of them seems to have been in the 1970-1980s.

They produced a series Casa Vento Decanter's Faces Of The World of 12 ceramic decanters such as Arabian, farmer, hobo man, Napoleon, football player and others. Each came with a booklet telling about it. They specialized in hand-painted ceramic and glass figural bottles including: a Skull bottle, a leprechaun, a turkey, lucky tiger, rifle, 3 ft snail-like bottle and a fish 4ft high in green glass.

So, what are these worth? Most I have seen sell on Ebay go for about $8-15 each
