This magnificent blown Murano Glass vase features rich radiant colors, fine workmanship, and unique artistic form, all of which highlight the mastery and artistic talent of Murano Glass makers. Festive colorful millefiori mosaics are scattered against cristallo glass with sparkly pieces of embedded genuine silver foil, and rich amethyst glass at the top seems to flow down the vase in a true expression of Murano artistic style. The amazing look of millefiori glass is further enhanced by the unique "fazzoletto" shape (which means "handkerchief" in Italian), invented by Murano masters to achieve exquisite weightlessness and elegance of handkerchief folds in glass.

This beautiful authentic Murano vase was painstakingly created by hand using only traditional glass-making methods by a third-generation Murano maestro, whose work is displayed at exhibitions and in museums worldwide. With or without flowers, it will make a perfect centerpiece and will add a touch of famous Italian design and Venetian opulence to your home. This gorgeous Venetian vase also makes a great luxurious gift to the special people in your life, as it is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

The Murano vase is approximately 10 inches tall and 6 inches in diameter in its widest part. This Murano Glass masterpiece has etched signature of the Master. 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.
