This unique decorative Murano Glass Candy Dish is stylish and modern but it is created using centuries-old glass-making methods that require the skill and technique few artisans today are capable of. The glass masters of Murano have been famous around the world for ages for the unique designs and quality of the pieces handcrafted in their furnaces. This decorative glass bowl is a great example of famed Murano look, featuring rare Filigrana technique pioneered in Venice in the 16th century, where glass canes are intertwined and fused together creating intricate webs reminiscent of fine lacework.

Entirely hand-made, this Murano Candy Dish is a collector's piece that will look great on your dinner or coffee table, or on your bed-stand holding your favorite jewelry. Classic and trendy at the same time, this Venetian decorative bowl will also make a perfect gift to those who treasure Venetian artistic heritage and appreciate fine craftsmanship of the kind that is hard to come by nowadays.

Measurements: This Murano Dish measures between 3-1/2 and 4 inches in diameter at the top and 1 1/2 inches in height. It comes very well packaged to avoid damage in transit and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Because each Murano item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.


Striped glass looks beautiful and unique but how is it made? This was the long-kept secret of Murano Glass artisans, which is now out in the open, yet nowhere else can you find the same glass quality and designs that you see on Murano Island. Striped glass vases are crafted by putting a layer of thinning stretched heated glass on top of a hot glass object, then twisting and turning the object to achieve the intended overall design. Based on the speed of turning and the technique you can change the direction of the stripes and spacing between them making patterns from spirals to parallel lines. The object is then put into the furnace where the bottom and top layers of glass fuse together to form a unique and elegant Murano art glass piece.
