This gorgeous Murano Glass Vase is not only a beautiful piece of art but a meanigful symbol cherished in Western Art, a Horn Of Plenty. With its connotation of abundance, prosperity, and good fortune, this vase makes an ideal meaningful gift to the special people in your life and for momentous occasions like weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, house warming, or career milestones. Created in rare Murano technique called "Sbruffo", the vase features rough texture showcasing the complex beauty of Murano glass and the contemporary design that mixes the elements of old and new. The deep and lustrous colors span the blue spectrum like the sea waters, all the way from the deep navy blue through aquamarine and to very light almost silvery blue of the sea surface. The resulting design is as unique, enigmatic, and effortlessly elegant as Venice itself.
This beautiful authentic Murano glass vase was painstakingly crafted by hand in a well-established Murano workshop, where traditional methods of glass production are complemented by constant innovation in techniques, and artistic vision of the masters never gets old.
- Measurements: The vase is approximately 10-1/2 inches tall and is about 6 inches in width in its widest part.
- The vase is 100% authentic Murano Glass. It is signed by the master. Attached sticker further proves its Murano origin, as does the certificate of authenticity that comes with the vase.
- Because this vase is a one-of-a-kind work of art made by hand, no two vases are ever completely alike. Slight variations of colors and patterns can be expected and are not a defect. Instead, this is another proof of the authenticity and artistic value of the vase.

Sbruffo is a distinctive Murano Glass design, which features rough-surfaces and multiple colors layered on top of each other. Sbruffo objects are made by putting layers of blown colored glass on top of a glass core, then breaking them off until just a thin and rough colorful layer on top remains. This process is then repeated over and over, until many rough layers are put on top of each other, creating an impression of flowing glass. The rough edges are then polished off. Using multiple colors and unique forms, the masters make tumblers, glasses, vases, bowls, and sculptures with sbruffo designs, which are instantly recognizable as authentic Murano Glass. Only a few Murano Glass factories and workshops still create sbruffo art glass objects, and many interior design aficionados, collectors, and Murano Glass fans seek these objects of refined beauty and distinct Italian elegance.
