This whimsical hand-blown Murano glass turtle features festoons of vivid colors that wrap its black glass body. Stylish and elaborate, this figurine showcases the best that Murano glassmakers have to offer with their unique combination of great skill and unmistakable taste. This delightful turtle will look great with any interior decor and will make every day a little brighter.

The elephant measures 1 1/2 inches in height and 2 1/2 inches in width.

Festooned Glass turtle 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.

Easy. Arrived quickly in perfect condition. Beautiful detail. Ultra cute turtle. Ordered, knowing its small dimensions, but still wish it were a little bigger. Gifted it to a very pleased recipient. Very happy with process and product.
