This exquisite Murano vase is an elegant and sumptuous work of art created by the Island's best Murano Glass masters. This Venetian vase features a cascade of stylized flowers in rich colors against tender aqua-blue background. The stunning design is created using famous Murano Millefiori technique (the name means "a thousand flowers" in Italian), which was invented by talented Murano Glass masters centuries ago. To achieve this look hundreds of unique colorful Millefiori pieces are picked out by hand and fused together at high temperature in a special furnace. The opulent vase features artistic urn form and beautiful 24K gold decorative elements, including the elegant handles and lion heads on each sides. The base of the vase is also crafted with 24K gold fused into the glass.
This Murano Glass vase is a beautiful decorative piece, which brings a touch of warm Mediterranean style and Venetian artistic heritage into your house. Also makes a great artistic gift for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, or birthdays.
Measurements: The vase is 5 inches tall and 4 inches in diameter in its widest part.
Authenticity: This beautiful authentic Murano Glass vase was painstakingly created by hand using only traditional glass-making methods by a third-generation Murano maestro, whose work is displayed at exhibitions, private collections, and in museums worldwide. It features the etched signature of the master glassmaker on the side, an attached sticker that further proves its Murano origin, and it also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.

Very beautiful. Everything I expected. You have the best murano artists of all web sites. Waiting on a big dig discount to purchase the tulip vase that broke during shipping. I was hoping you would replace it for free. Looking forward to doing much business with you. Happy Holidays!

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’s 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.
