The Venetian family of the Marcolins moved to Ronneby, Sweden several decades ago, where in 1961, brothers Joseph and Bonito Marcolin opened the Marcolin Art Crystal glass factory in Ronneby, Sweden. All glassware produced by Marcolin is handblown and consists mostly of ornamental glassware. There are nice close up shots of blowing, shaping, and marvering while Joseph Marcolin makes a large glass eagle. About 50% of Marcolin's glassware is exported to the United States. This film also mentions awards for excellence and design that the company has received from 1984-1986.

This film differs from the short version, in that it shows employees blowing, working, grinding, polishing, packaging, and shipping the glassware. It also mentions and visits several of the upper class stores in New York City which sell Marcolin Art Crystal. There is also more footage of the America Award awards ceremony held in New York City in 1986.
