This playful Murano Glass Dolphin was created in complex Chalcedony glass-making technique to resemble natural mineral chalcedony. This mineral's unusual bright color patterns intrigued people for centuries, and made Murano glass-makers instantly famous when they figured out how to create similar designs from glass. The unique combination of rich colors flowing within translucent glass and fine design make this dolphin an instant conversation piece. The fine translucent ball-shaped base really brings out dolphin's beautiful colors and mesmerizes with a pattern of bubbles crafted in challenging Murano Glass Bullicante technique. This elegant dolphin sculpture will make a gorgeous Venetian accent in your home or office and conjure up the images of Venice, itself exquisite and gorgeous creature of the sea.

Measurements: The dolphin sculpture measures about 9 inches in height and 6 inches in width. Diameter of the pedestal ball is 3-1/2 inch. It is very well packaged to avoid damage in transit.
Authenticity: The dolphin sculpture is signed by the artist and features the original sticker of the official Murano glass-makers' consortium, it is also accompanied by the certificate of authenticity.
As this Murano Dolphin is a unique artistic sculpture made by hand, some variations of colors and patterns are possible. These do not constitute a defect but rather are the very features by which experts recognize authentic Murano Glass.


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.
