This charming Murano glass cat sculpture represents the long-running artistic tradition of Murano glass combined with ingenuity and technical virtuosity of Murano glass masters. Using the most famous and distinctive ancient Murano glass technique- Millefiori (a thousand flowers), Murano masters created this elegant cat sculpture with the body of vivid stylized flowers and the eyes, nose, and beautiful tail in rich ruby red glass for a striking artistic effect. This lovely cat will make a perfect adorable addition to your home or office and will bring a touch of Venetian elegance and charm into your life. This graceful Murano cat sculpture also makes a uniquely appropriate luxurious gift to any cat lover or anyone who loves Venice and appreciates its artistic and historical traditions.
  • Measurements: Murano Glass cat figurine is approximately 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide in its widest part.
  • This fine Murano glass cat was handcrafted 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 cat sculpture is signed by the master. The attached sticker further proves its Murano origin, as does the certificate of authenticity that comes with the cat.
  • Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of sizes, colors and patterns are possible.

This cat is fabulous! The detail and workmanship are very impressive. Sunlight peeks through the cat, which makes it even more beautiful. I gifted my cat sitter with this piece, and he was thrilled!

The first order was damaged in shipment. I immediately sent them pictures of the figurine, the damaged package and damaged fedex envelope. There were no questions from customer service and they IMMEDIATELY shipped me a new figurine which we received promptly. Their customer service is impeccable and the best I have ever dealt with.

I was just in Murano 6 weeks ago & saw some magnificent (but very expensive)pieces. This is a classic style & great momento. Four stars instead of five because I have seen wonderful glasswork from Murano, but this was exactly what I was looking for & the price I was willing to pay.

Mrs was thrilled with the cat sculpture paired with the dog sculpture. We have some Millefiore-style objects at home from our trip to Murano island in Venice, so the pair fit in.

Workmanship



Murano Glass Millefiori, also known as a thousand flowers, is a glass-making technique invented in ancient Egypt, perfected in ancient Rome, then forgotten and reinvented again on Murano island. Dipping a blob of hot malleable glass into pre-cut pieces of Millefiori made from a special millefiori cane, the master creates a design of a thousand flowers on the surface of the glass and then heats the glass again to fully bind the millefiori pieces to the surface. Often 24K gold foil is wrapped around the object and fused into it to create unique sparkly appearance with Millefiori design. The master then sits on the bench and works the hot glass to create the desired shape and design, repeatedly reheating the glass. This is how Murano Glass Millefiori figurines, sculptures, vases, bowls, and many other artistic objects are created by hand in Murano Glass factories.
