This beautiful Murano glass swan 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 swan sculpture with the body of vivid stylized flowers and the highly detailed eyes, beak, and tail in rich cobalt blue glass for a striking artistic effect.
This authentic Murano glass swan was painstakingly created by hand using only traditional glass-making methods by a third-generation Murano maestro, whose work is displayed at exhibitions and in museums worldwide. It will make a perfect stylish addition to your home or office and will bring a touch of Venetian elegance and charm into your life. This Murano swan sculpture also makes a uniquely appropriate luxurious gift to the special people in your life, as it is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
The swan is approximately 4 inches tall and 5 inches wide in its widest part. Attached sticker proves its Murano origin, as does the certificate of authenticity that comes with the sculpture.
Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of sizes, colors and patterns are possible.

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.
