This gorgeous Venetian vase is an elegant and rich work of art created by the hands of Murano Glass masters. This Murano vase features a cascade of colors and rich stylized flowers 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 under high temperature in a special furnace.
The amazing look of millefiori glass is further enhanced by the exquisite urn form of the vase and by the beautiful 24K gold decorative elements, including the elegant handles and lion heads on its 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 for any room of your house. It also makes a uniquely appropriate gift of Venetian heritage and Italian style for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, or birthdays.
Measurements: This Murano vase is 5 inches tall and 4 inches in diameter in its widest part.
Authenticity: This beautiful authentic Venetian 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. The vase features the etched signature of the master 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.
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.
