Venice has always been a city of romance and love, with an enchanting personality that is embodied by the quiet canals and the archetypal gondola. Considered a symbol of romance and love, the unique boat, which characterizes the culture of Venice, has been handmade by Murano Glass artisans with rare skills and passion for their craft and their city. On one side of this fine gondola is an elegant red heart, ferried along by the gondolier with his single oar, completing the image symbolizing love, devotion, and the best of romantic and magical Venice. This Murano Glass gondola sculpture is a lovely gift to those who love and treasure their memories of Venice, as well as your loved ones, or romantics at heart.
- Measurements: the gondola measures about 9 inches in length and the maximum height is about 4 inches.
- This gondola figurine is handmade in a traditional Murano workshop by an artisan family that has been making Murano Glass for generations.
- The gondola is well packaged to avoid damage in transit and comes with the certificate of authenticity.
- The mooring poles may vary in color according the fantasy of the artisan, but they will always feature rich colors reflecting the glassmaking tradition.
- Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand, some variations of colors and patterns are possible.

The piece was elegant. However, the tip of the gondola was broken off. We are now waiting for a replacement.
Thank you Glass of Venice.

Lampworking technique of glass-making, which dates back to ancient Egypt, was revived by Murano glass artisans around the fourteenth century. This technique is based on heating up a blob of glass under a small flame from a lamp or a torch until it reaches malleable state, then blowing and using simple tools or just hands to create various forms and designs. Lampworking allows the artisan's creativity to blossom, as copper sparkles, various minerals, and pieces of glass cane are fused together in this process to create rich colors and imaginative patterns that are always unique. Murano Glass masters often use lampworking method to create small jewelry, such as pendants, earrings, or rings, as well as keychains, barrettes, pillboxes, and figurines.
