This gorgeous Murano Glass fish sporting beautiful colors and silver shimmer mesmerizes with its elegant design thanks to the skill and imagination of Murano's talented glass masters. Featuring a rainbow of colors from rich red and amber to deep yellows and blues, this Murano Glass fish is crafted in the ancient Venetian tradition by the descendants of the famous glass masters of the centuries past in rare Chalcedony technique. Chalcedony technique was invented by Murano artisans in the fifteenth century in order to imitate a coveted natural mineral Chalcedony and instantly became known and sought after the world over.
Contemporary yet classic, this gorgeous Fish sculpture is a perfect memento of the city of Venice and its mysterious sea-inspired atmosphere. This Chalcedony Fish is a wonderful gift to romantics, sea-lovers, Murano Glass collectors, or people with refined taste and the love of European artistic tradition.
Measurements: This Murano Glass Fish is approximately 7 inches in high, 7 inches wide, and 1-1/2 inches in depth. Weight is approximately 2 lbs. It comes very well packaged to avoid damage in transit.
Authenticity: The sculpture is 100% authentic crafted in a traditional family-based Murano Glass workshop. It features the signature of the master, the sticker of the official Murano Glass Consortium, and the certificate of authenticity.

As this sculpture is a one-of-a-kind piece made entirely by hand, some variations of colors and patterns as well as random bubbles inside glass are normal and should be expected. 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.
