An elegant work of Murano Glass Art, this tomato adds a touch of Venetian beauty in any home or office. Designed and handcrafted by the top masters in one of the oldest traditional workshops on Murano island, this Murano tomato continues the rich Murano Glass artisan tradition, where often glass fruits and vegetables were a part of elaborate dinner setup in wealthy merchant and noble families. In many cultures tomato, called "the love apple" in Europe in the middle ages, symbolizes sensuality, which makes it a great gift for many joyous occasions, from engagements and weddings, to Valentine's Day, loved ones' birthdays and anniversaries. The gracious form, the rich colors captured inside the tomato's translucent core, and the use of complex Sommerso glass-making technique invented by Murano Glass artists, all support Murano’s reputation as the number one destination for contemporary decorative art. This tomato conjures up images of the simpler past and brings you a sense of tranquility with a flavor of Venice. This is a work of art that will stand the test of time and will become a family heirloom treasured for generations.
