This gorgeous blown Murano glass pitcher is a fine example of the most famous and distinctive ancient Murano technique- Millefiori (a thousand flowers)- that has become a trademark of Murano glass-making. Vivid stylized flowers on rich cobalt-blue background with generous 24K golden dusting all over create an impression of a fairy-tale quilt, whose magical beauty is impossible to describe. The exhilarating look of millefiori glass combined with graceful classic shape will bring a glimpse of famous Italian design and Venetian sophistication to your home, and will also makes a uniquely appropriate luxurious present to the special people in your life, as it is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
This artistic authentic Murano glass pitcher 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.

The pitcher is approximately 7 1/2 inches tall and 4 inches in diameter in its widest part, and can be used to pour your favorite wine, hold flowers, or by itself, as a stylish accent to your home decor. This Murano glass masterpiece is signed by the master. Attached sticker further proves its Murano origin, as does the certificate of authenticity that comes with the pitcher.
Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.

Workmanship



To create Millefiori Murano Glass masters first need to cut special millefiori glass canes into tiny pieces, sort those pieces manually by color, and then use them in the glass-making process to achieve the unique Millefiori look of a thousand flowers. To make a Murano Glass pitcher, carafe, or decanter, the master gathers molten glass at the end of a special metal rod, then immerses it into bowls with color-sorted Millefiori pieces, making these pieces stick to the surface. The piece consisting of the layer of molten glass covered with a layer of millefiori beads is then heated up in the furnace, making the two layers fuse and creating the Millefiori pattern on the surface of the art glass object. The object is then re-heated and formed by the master using basic instruments such as pliers and scissors to get the desired pitcher shape.
