Venice with its iconic gondolas sliding down the canals is a city known for romance, beauty, and magical atmosphere. But Venice is also a very festive place, especially around Christmas-time, with symbols of the holiday and good cheer spread throughout the city. The glass artisans of Murano have combined these two aspects of their home in this imaginative Murano Glass figurine of a gondola being directed by none other than Santa Claus himself, having abandoned his customary sleigh for his trip through the beautiful city of Venice. Anyone who enjoys the enchanting spirit of Christmas and the special magic of the winter holidays will appreciate this handcrafted Murano Glass figurine symbolizing Christmas in Venice. This Santa-guided gondola also makes a wonderful Christmas gift to those who appreciate Venetian artistic heritage and fine Murano craftsmanship.
  • Measurements: the gondola measures just under 4-1/2 inches in length and the height is about 3 inches.
  • This fine and detailed gondola with Santa as a gondolier is made entirely by hand in a traditional Murano workshop by a family that has been making Murano Glass for several generations.
  • The sculpture comes well packaged to avoid damage in transit and is accompanied by the certificate of authenticity.
  • Note: the mooring poles vary in color according to the fantasy of the artisan, but they will always feature bright rich colors reflecting the Venetian glassmaking tradition.
  • Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand, some variations of colors and patterns are possible.

Workmanship



Lampworking is one of the most recognized Murano Glass techniques, which is used by Venetian master artisans to create a variety of Murano glassware such as sculptures, figurines, jewelry and more under a small flame by manipulating special Murano Glass canes and working with basic instruments to achieve elaborate and artistic designs limited only by the artisan's imagination. Making each figurine one at a time, finely crafting every detail, the Venetian masters demonstrate impressive skill and artistic talent, the signature features of authentic Murano Glass.
