Product description
This cute hand-blown Murano glass penguin looks ready to waddle off with its amber-colored wings spread wide and its head turned towards an invisible object of attraction. Featuring swirls of vivid colors arranged in festooned patterns wrapping its glass body, this figurine demonstrates a unique combination of craftsmanship and style that made Murano glassmakers world-famous. Playful, joyful and adorable, this well-designed little penguin will become a favorite in your home.

The penguin measures 2 1/2 inches in height and 2 inches in width.

Festooned Glass penguin is a part of Festooned Thread Figurines Collection. The beautiful garland-like decoration was adopted in Murano at the end of the 17th century, though it was used on glass as far back as the 2nd millennium AC. To produce the festooned motif Murano glassmakers employ a complicated technique called 'fenicio' (Phoenician), in which the glassworker wraps the incandescent glass threads with a thin pontil, or "speo", and then while the object is still hot, he combs the threads with a hooked tool, called a "maneretta". The result is a remarkable pattern that is classic, eye-catching and inimitable.

Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.
