This magnificent blown Murano Glass vase features rich colors with extraordinary depth and radiance and presents a fine example of the most famous and distinctive ancient Murano technique- Millefiori (a thousand flowers). Inclusions of vivid Millefiori flowers, rich cobalt-blue hue, and generous 24K gold dusting on the base and the rim of this vase bring to life the opulence and luxury of renaissance Venice. The amazing look of millefiori glass is further enhanced by the unique "fazzoletto" shape ("handkerchief" in Italian), a form perfected by Murano masters to achieve the exquisite weightlessness and elegance of handkerchief folds in glass.

This beautiful authentic Murano glass vase was painstakingly created by hand using only traditional Venetian glass-making methods by a third-generation Murano maestro, whose works are featured at exhibitions, private collections, and in museums worldwide. This vase is a perfect centerpiece for your table, which can be used as a vase or a bowl for sweets or fruits. It offers a great way to wow your dinner guests and add a touch of famous Italian design and Venetian opulence to your home. This gorgeous Murano vase also makes a uniquely appropriate gift for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas or Mother's Day as it is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

The Venetian vase/bowl is approximately 6 inches tall and 6 inches in diameter at the top. It has etched signature of the master on the side. Attached sticker further proves its Murano origin, as does the certificate of authenticity that comes with the vase.
Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.

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.
