Web Description: 
Ambero, which was produced only in 1915 and 1916, was probably made in very few shapes and patterns. The decorating process was labor-intensive. The exterior was acid-etched to give the object a textured, translucent effect, and enamel decoration was then applied to the interior and fired to make the enamel permanent.
