This magnificent Murano Glass vase is a fine example of centuries-old Millefiori technique featuring raised pieces of colorful glass mosaics fused into rich red background. The airy and elegant look of this Murano vase is achieved by its unique hand-crafted form called "fazzoletto" ("handkerchief") in Italian, made to imitate the free-flowing handkerchief folds.
This beautiful authentic Murano Glass vase with artistic design and unique form was painstakingly crafted by hand using only traditional glass-making methods by a third-generation Murano maestro, whose work is displayed at exhibitions and in museums worldwide. This Murano piece will add a decorative artistic touch from Venice to your home and impress your dinner guests when you put it full of sweets, fruits, or berries on your table. Exquisite and unique, this Murano Glass vase also makes perfect Venetian gift for important occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, or weddings.

The bowl is approximately 5 inches tall and 5 1/2 inches in diameter at the top, in its widest part. The diameter of the bottom part is about 3 1/2 inches. This Murano glass masterpiece has etched signature of the master on the bottom. Attached sticker further proves its Murano origin, as does the certificate of authenticity that comes with the bowl.
Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.

Always happy with Glass of Venice!
This vase is beautiful, and as always, I am amazed with the artisans work.
The packing was superb, the packaging needs some work.
I wanted to give this as a gift, but found out there was no consumer packaging with it.
The vase was just wrapped in bubble wrap.
Please pack your products in a nice box so we can gift them.

Workmanship



Murano Glass Millefiori is a unique glass-making technique, which results in bright mosaic-like multicolor appearance of the glass. Millefiori vases, bowls, figurines, ornaments, tableware and drinking glasses are crafted by hand in Murano Glass factories using Murano masters' original method that has changed little over the centuries. To achieve the look of Millefiori glass, the master artisans of Murano use special locally-made Millefiori glass canes, which are then hand-cut into small disc-shaped pieces and sorted by color in separate bowls. Next, the master heats up a blob of transparent or colored glass and dips it into the bowls with Millefiori pieces to achieve a specific design and color pattern. The Millefiori beads immediately stick to the hot surface of the glass, and once the intended design is formed, the glassmakers puts the glass blob back into the furnace to make the Millefiori pieces on the surface fully fuse with the base glass layer to form a single surface. Afterwards, the glass artisan goes to his special bench, where he blows, forms, and shapes the glass with pliers and scissors to make the intended object, be it a Murano Glass vase, bowl, Christmas ornament, or a sculpture. The resulting piece is an art glass object that is unique and beautiful.
