ZP_VANVIN3F_RD Serve wine in this gorgeous Murano Glass Decanter And Glasses Set and stun your guests with the height of Italian design and classic Venetian style. Featuring hand-painted enamel flowers amid rich 24 karat gold decoration offset by the deep red color of the glass, this Murano Glass decanter set showcases the classic Venetian decorative style called "Tre Fuochi" or "Three Flames", which used to be all the rage in nineteenth-century Europe. It is still very popular today but only a few distinguished glass masters on Murano still make it. This exclusive design made especially for Glass Of Venice includes a gorgeous decanter and 6 wine glasses on the gold stem crafted in a complex three-stage process.

The fairy-tale decanter and elegant wine glasses bring to your home the Italian tradition of fine dining and old-world European chic.
