ALESSANDRO MORETTI CANE
On one of our trips to Milton around 1990 , after seeing relatives stopping at Blenko and Charley Gibsons. We stop at Fred Balls shop. After looking at every thing and listening to one of Freds storys he showed us a cane that was signed and that we should have it . The signature did not mean much at the time but I looked it up a while back and I was suprised at the significance of the mans name in the handcraft glass. ALESSANDRO MORETTI worked at pilgrim and did dimenstrations at the 64 worlds fair. His cousin is Mario Sanden. they are Pilgrim glass.
Thanks Larry T.
