Our charming Murano Glass Dog was blown by the Island's famous glass masters using a very distinctive ancient Murano technique- Millefiori (a thousand flowers). Blown glass is wrapped into hundreds of colorful Murano Glass mosaic pieces with patterns inside, then fused together and richly covered with 24K gold to give this Venetian Dog its elegant and opulent look. Adorable and unique, the Murano Millefiori Dog sculpture is an instant conversation starter and a great way to bring Venetian artistic heritage and Murano excellence into your living room.
Our Murano Glass Dog also makes a wonderful gift for any dog lover and is very appropriate for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, or birthdays. Remember: a wonderful artistic gift of Murano Glass is bound to be treasured for generations. Complement this adorable sculpture with other artistic pieces from Golden Quilt Millefiori Collection for even more coordinated look.

Measurements: The Murano Dog measures approximately 4 inches in height and 2 inches in width at the base. It is very well packaged to avoid damage in transit and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

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

Workmanship



Murano Glass Millefiori, also known as a thousand flowers, is a glass-making technique invented in ancient Egypt, perfected in ancient Rome, then forgotten and reinvented again on Murano island. Dipping a blob of hot malleable glass into pre-cut pieces of Millefiori made from a special millefiori cane, the master creates a design of a thousand flowers on the surface of the glass and then heats the glass again to fully bind the millefiori pieces to the surface. Often 24K gold foil is wrapped around the object and fused into it to create unique sparkly appearance with Millefiori design. The master then sits on the bench and works the hot glass to create the desired shape and design, repeatedly reheating the glass. This is how Murano Glass Millefiori figurines, sculptures, vases, bowls, and many other artistic objects are created by hand in Murano Glass factories.
