Venice is stunning, exquisite, and unique, with golden rays of sun playing in the water of its famous canals. Venetian charm and glamour are reflected in this Murano Glass sculpture of a Venetian Gentleman in period clothes that seems to have frozen in the middle of a dance at a luxurious seventeenth century Venetian ball. His sumptuous clothes are sculpted with precision unseen nowadays, highlighting every fold and wrinkle, the rich texture of the materials, and creating gracious movement in glass.
Crafted with amazing technical skill and artistic talent by prominent Murano Glass masters whose works are displayed in museums and galleries, this Venetian Gentleman figure showcases the best characteristics of authentic Murano Glass. Exquisite craftsmanship, fine design, deep luscious colors, rich inlay of 24K gold give this sculpture its stunning and unmistakably Venetian look. A rich and memorable gift to anyone who appreciates Venice's beauty and art, this Venetian Gentleman sculpture is sure to be appreciated and become a family keepsake that will be treasured for generations.

Measurements: The height of the Gentleman is 9-1/2 inches. The width in its widest part is 4 inches. The base is 3-1/2 inches in diameter.
The sculpture comes very well packaged to avoid damage in transit and comes with the certificate of authenticity and the original Murano sticker. Made in Venice, Italy.

Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made entirely by hand, slight variations of colors and shapes are possible.

Workmanship



Larger Murano Glass figures and sculptures are typically made in the ancient factories on Murano island, where there is enough space to turn, twist, and blow the glass, move it into and out of the large furnaces, and cool it down properly. Making the glass mixture with the right color intensity and pattern is only a part of the job. The biggest challenge is shaping the glass just perfectly while keeping it in the correct state in between the bench and the furnace. This requires special skills rarely found outside of Murano Glass artist and artisan community. These Murano Glass sculptures of lovers, Venetian ladies and gentlemen, clowns, abstract art, animals and birds crafted in well-known Murano factories are top-quality art glass pieces sought after by interior decor specialists and collectors alike.
