The beauty of Venice is unmatched anywhere in the world, and so is the talent of its glass masters. Venetian glass-making tradition based on the small but famous Murano Island goes back over eight hundred years, when the local masters learned the intricacies of glass-making from the Byzantine artisans. This beautiful Murano sculpture of a noble Venetian Dame created with Millefiori technique and a layer of 24K gold fused into glass reflects the talent and exceptional skill of Murano Glass artists and the grand heritage of Murano glass-making tradition. From the realistically sculpted texture of the materials, folds and creases of clothing, you can almost feel the gracious movement of this flirtatious female figure frozen in mid-conversation.

Measurements: The height of the Lady is 12 inches. The width in the widest part of the skirt is 6 inches. The diameter of the base is 3 1/2 inches. The sculpture comes very well packaged to prevent damage in transit and is accompanied by the certificate of authenticity and the original Murano sticker. 100% handmade in Venice, Italy.

Because each Murano Glass sculpture 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.
