Our charming Murano Glass turtle was blown by the glass masters using a very distinctive ancient Murano technique- Millefiori (a thousand flowers). Hundreds of colorful Murano Glass mosaic pieces with patterns inside are fused together and richly covered with rich 24K gold to give this Venetian turtle opulence and style. Whimsical and unique, the Murano Millefiori turtle sculpture is an instant conversation piece and a great way to bring Venetian artistic heritage and Murano excellence into your living room. The Murano Glass turtle also makes a uniquely appropriate gift for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, or birthdays, guaranteed to be treasured for generations. Pair this adorable sculpture with other artistic pieces from Golden Quilt Millefiori Collection for even more striking effect.
Measurements: The Murano turtle measures approximately 5 inches in length, 2 1/2 inches in height and 2 1/2 inches in width. 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.
