This stunning Murano Glass Horse Head sculpture represents the long-running artistic tradition of Murano glass combined with talent and technical virtuosity of Murano Glass masters. Using two of the most technically challenging ancient Murano glass-making techniques, Millefiori (a thousand flowers) and Filigrana, the glass masters created a sculpture that is at once realistic and highly ornate, evoking images from magical fairy tales.

This elegant Murano horse head with alternating stripes of colorful Millefiori flowers and filigrana net-like pattern made of glass canes sports highly detailed mane, ears, and eyes in rich blue glass generously sprinkled with 24K gold. It will make a perfect Italian design accent to your home or office with a touch of Venetian sophistication and tradition. This graceful Murano Glass horse sculpture also makes a unique luxurious gift for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays or holidays.

  • The horse head is approximately 9-1/2 inches tall and 9 inches wide in its widest part.
  • The authentic Murano glass horse head was blown and crafted by hand using only traditional glass-making methods by a third-generation Murano maestro, whose work is displayed at exhibitions and in museums worldwide.
  • This Murano glass sculpture is signed by the master. Attached sticker further proves its Murano origin, as does the certificate of authenticity that comes with the horse.
  • Because this sculpture is a unique work of art made by hand using complex glass-making techniques, slight variations of sizes, colors and patterns are possible. These do not constitute a defect but rather serve as additional proof of authenticity of this art glass piece.


Murano Glass Millefiori is a unique glass-making technique, which results in bright mosaic-like multicolor appearance of the glass. Millefiori vases, bowls, figurines, ornaments, tableware and drinking glasses are crafted by hand in Murano Glass factories using Murano masters’ original method that’s changed little over the centuries. To achieve the look of Millefiori glass, the master artisans of Murano use special locally-made Millefiori glass canes, which are then hand-cut into small disc-shaped pieces and sorted by color in separate bowls. Next, the master heats up a blob of transparent or colored glass and dips it into the bowls with Millefiori pieces to achieve a specific design and color pattern. The Millefiori beads immediately stick to the hot surface of the glass, and once the intended design is formed, the glassmakers puts the glass blob back into the furnace to make the Millefiori pieces on the surface fully fuse with the base glass layer to form a single surface. Afterwards, the glass artisan goes to his special bench, where he blows, forms, and shapes the glass with pliers and scissors to make the intended object, be it a Murano Glass vase, bowl, Christmas ornament, or a sculpture. The resulting piece is an art glass object that is unique and beautiful.
