Wonderful replacement for a long ago stopper lost in moving... not exact, but matches a cranberry decanter with 6 cordial glasses set that I hand carried from a Venice trip many decades ago... could not be happier that I could match it so well!

Murano Glass figurines, bottle stoppers, and ornaments handmade over a small flame create a fairy-tale atmosphere of Old Europe during the holidays or any time of the year. Starting from a cane held under a small flame and blowing gently to create a hollow ball, the master uses ornamental features like pieces of Millefiori mosaics, gold and silver foil, and creative mixing of colors and techniques to craft beautiful Murano Glass figurines and ornaments. These beautiful Murano Glass objects are made one-at-a-time in a traditional Murano Glass workshop using ancient glass-making methods and very basic tools.
