Accentuate your table setting in the famed Italian style with this fine Murano Glass Carafe, which comes straight from the workshop of world-renown Murano artisans. Having worked on Murano island for decades, these masters follow in the footsteps of their fathers and grandfathers evolving the craft that has been in existence for thousands of years. This Murano Carafe showcases the complex and rare Filigrana technique on the bottom contrasting with the deep blue color at the top for a winning combination of old-world sophistication with modern design. Far from being just a decorative accent, this Murano Glass bottle carafe is a functional piece, which can be used to serve wine, water, or soft drinks at your next gathering. With its fine craftsmanship and contemporary appeal, the carafe makes the perfect gift to someone who appreciates handmade quality and Italian style.
  • This Murano Glass Carafe is 100% authentic, and handmade on Murano Island using only traditional glass-making techniques.
  • Measurements: The carafe is approximately 10 inches tall. The diameter of the base is about 4 inches. The capacity of the carafe is 33 oz or 1 Liter.
  • The pitcher is well packaged to avoid damage in transit and is accompanied by the certificate of authenticity and the sticker confirming its Venetian origin.
  • Because each Murano Glass piece is a handcrafted work of art and due to the unique features of the glass-making technique, some variations of colors and patterns will occur. This is not a defect but the sign by which you can recognize authentic Murano Glass, where two items are never exactly the same.

Workmanship



Murano Glass vases, figurines, tumblers, and tableware often feature a unique look, where base layer of glass is decorated with colorful flowers, leaves, abstract glass streaks, or in other ways by applying stretched out dripping glass in various colors and shapes on top of a blown glass core. This technique requires precision, talent, and many years of experience working with Murano Glass. Murano Glass has unique characteristics which, when heated up, make it stretch and flow easily, and quickly cool off to form the desired pattern. Murano Glass masters in Venice often use this technique to create abstract Venetian glassware such as Picasso-style heads, vases, or sculptures, and other modern-art creations.
