The Venetian vase/bowl is approximately 4 inches tall and 5 inches in diameter. It has etched signature of the master on the side. Attached sticker further proves the bowl's Murano origin, as does the certificate of authenticity that comes with it.

Make sure you check the dimensions - this is a very SMALL bowl so it needs a more focused display area than the bigger pieces like the ART GLASS VASES in blue and orange. It is a great unique piece and love that blue.

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.
