Set your table in the opulent Venetian style and prepare to receive many compliments with these uniquely beautiful Murano Glass plates. Each Murano Glass plate is created entirely by hand in one of the most distinctive and labor-intensive Murano techniques- Millefiori (a thousand flowers). To achieve this look, hundreds of small colorful pieces of glass mosaics with multitude of patterns inside are created first, then gathered onto the blown glass shape and fused together in special furnaces to create the unusual and festive Murano Glass pieces. A mix of rich colors, unusual patterns, and fine craftsmanship make this Murano Plate an instant conversation piece at the dining table.

A gorgeous reminder of the magic and beauty of Venice, our Murano Millefiori plates make a great addition to your dining collection, a must-have for those who like to live and entertain in style. This Murano glass plate, or a set of them, also makes a wonderful gift of Venetian elegance and Italian style for special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, or anniversaries.
Measurements: The Murano Plate measures approximately 5 inches in diameter. It is very well packaged to avoid damage in transit and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible and no two pieces are exactly alike.

Workmanship



The technique of fusing together small colored fragments of glass dates all the way back to Ancient Egypt and Rome. After the fall of Rome, having been lost for centuries, this intricate technique was reinvented by Murano glass masters in the 15th century, and given new life and worldwide fame. While this technique is called "Murrine" on Murano island, outside of Venice it was dubbed "Millefiori", or "a thousand flowers" for its resemblance to a blossoming meadow.
A Millefiori design starts with the rods of different colors, each made by stretching a blob of glass into a cane. These canes are then cut into small segments, and the segments are carefully arranged by hand into a pattern that fits within a desired shape. Finally, the resulting arrangement is put into a special furnace where the tiny glass pieces are carefully fused together in high heat, and then gradually cooled off. This is how Murano masters create their famous Millefiori pendants, earrings, cufflinks, pill boxes, paperweights and many other beautiful and unique Millefiori jewelry pieces that are instantly recognized and valued for their artistic appeal and fine craftsmanship. Enjoy your Murano Glass jewelry creation, knowing that it was carefully handmade by talented Murano Glass artisans in Venice, Italy.
