From the Manufacturer:
The fine tradition of the Bormioli Rocco Group coincides with the very history of glass: the first glassworks was established in Parma in 1825.

Bormioli Rocco Dedalo Decanter with Stopper Review
#1) The stopper doesn’t stay in. I push it down and it slowly rises back up and doesn’t seal (the stopper is plastic).
#2) The glass is clearly molded and is not cut as the product description indicates; it has clearly visible molding lines and marks. There are warbles and imperfections in the glass that should have been polished out.
#3) The stopper slowly works its way up and if thebottle is bumped or moved it will fall off.
#4) This low-priced decanter was a very cheap looking molded glass imitation of a cut decanter. One might have expected more from something made in Italy.
#1) It has a nice heavy weight to it, but not too heavy for its purpose. It is brilliantly cut, having a similar look to crystal, but without the poisonous effect of lead.
#2) The glass is very thick, so thick that you can see the inseam on the sides! Almost thought it was plastic because the glass was so thick!
