This Istanbul region was a center for glassmaking for centuries, if not millennia. One reason was the fine white sand of Kumburgaz, a key ingredient. This vintage green glass bottle has a slightly irregular neck that adds to its charm.
One Kings Lane co-founder Susan Feldman and vice president of creative Ethan Trask took a whirlwind jaunt through Istanbul that had them winding through bazaars and scouring secret shops for handmade treasures and wildly vibrant rugs. We're thrilled to bring their finds to you.
