Instantly add style and elegance to your table with this fine Murano Glass Carafe, which comes straight from one of Murano's famous family-owned glassworks. Having worked on the Island for decades, these artisans follow in the footsteps of their fathers and grandfathers carrying on the tradition that is thousands of years old while continuously re-imagining and innovating. This Murano Carafe showcases the skill and talent of Venetian glass-makers and the evolution of Murano Glass, where the old and the new merge together and make a perfect marriage of craftsmanship and design. Far from being just a decorative accent, this pitcher is a functional piece, which can be used for serving wine, water, or soft drinks. With silver-infused patterns evoking shimmering waters of Venetian canals touched by the moonlight, this carafe makes the perfect gift to a romantic at heart who appreciates old world fine craftsmanship and contemporary Italian design.
This Murano Glass Pitcher or Carafe is 100% authentic, handmade on Murano Island using only traditional glass-making techniques and basic tools.

Measurements: The pitcher is approximately 9 inches tall. The diameter of the opening is 4 inches. The diameter of the widest part is 6 inches. It is is lined with genuine 925 silver. The carafe is 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.


To create Millefiori Murano Glass masters first need to cut special millefiori glass canes into tiny pieces, sort those pieces manually by color, and then use them in the glass-making process to achieve the unique Millefiori look of a thousand flowers. To make a Murano Glass pitcher, carafe, or decanter, the master gathers molten glass at the end of a special metal rod, then immerses it into bowls with color-sorted Millefiori pieces, making these pieces stick to the surface. The piece consisting of the layer of molten glass covered with a layer of millefiori beads is then heated up in the furnace, making the two layers fuse and creating the Millefiori pattern on the surface of the art glass object. The object is then re-heated and formed by the master using basic instruments such as pliers and scissors to get the desired pitcher shape.
