With its whimsical shape, bright Millefiori costume, large red collar, black top hat, and a big smile, this Venetian glass clown reminds us of the childhood and the magical circus performances we so eagerly anticipated back then.
Classic Clown sculptures like this one have been crafted on Murano for over a century and are sought by Murano Art Glass aficionados and collectors worldwide. And it's no wonder - the exquisite forms, elaborate details, and the rich splash of colors that never fade showcase the skill and talent of Venetian artisans like few other pieces can.
  • Measurements: This clown measures 6 1/2 inches in height and 4 1/2 inches in diameter of the body.
  • The clown is very well packaged to ensure safe shipping.
  • This is 100% authentic handmade Murano Glass Figurine. It comes with Murano Glass original sticker and the certificate of authenticity. There is a signature of the master artisan on the bottom.
  • Since this Murano Clown sculpture is a unique piece of art made entirely by hand, small variations of colors and shapes, as well as random bubbles inside glass are possible. These are not defects but the very signs by which you can recognize authentic Murano Glass.

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.
