This graceful hand-blown Murano glass fish has unique design featuring swirls of vibrant colors arranged in festooned patterns throughout its black glass body. Artistically crafted with a splash of gorgeous hues, this figurine showcases a rare blend of mastery and artistry that made Murano glassmakers best in class. This beautiful glass fish standing on its amber-colored fins will create a nice accent in any room and will bring a touch of Italian design to your home or office.

The fish measures 4 inches in height and 3 inches in width.

Half-moon-shaped fish in festooned pattern is a part of Festooned Thread Figurines Collection. The beautiful garland-like decoration was adopted in Murano at the end of the 17th century, though it was used on glass as far back as the 2nd millennium AC. To produce the festooned motif Murano glassmakers employ a complicated technique called 'fenicio' (Phoenician), in which the glassworker wraps the incandescent glass threads with a thin pontil, or "speo", and then while the object is still hot, he combs the threads with a hooked tool, called a "maneretta". The result is a remarkable pattern that is classic, eye-catching and inimitable.

Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.
