Elegant, colorful and unique, Murano Glass tumblers have been popular for centuries among those who value exceptional craftsmanship and like to surround themselves with beauty. Originally each Murano glassblower made his own tumbler to have a drink of water on hand as he labored tirelessly next to the furnaces burning at high temperatures year around. The glassblower would make his glass colorful and decorate it with a pattern to easily distinguish it from others and show off his individuality. Eventually these tumblers have become popular and sought after outside of the workshops, and to these day some of the best Murano masters blow these tumblers according to the techniques and traditions developed in the Middle Ages.
This Murano Glass tumbler, with its rich blue color, contemporary design, and unique shimmer of sterling silver layered into the glass, is a great example of Murano masters' creativity and skill in fusing the old and the new. It is a fine gift of Venetian beauty and Murano artistic heritage to yourself or someone special in your life.
Measurements: This tumbler measures 4 inches in height, and the diameter at the widest part is 3 1/2 inches. The diameter of the base is 2 1/2 inches. The drinking glass comes very well packaged to avoid damage, and each one is accompanied by the certificate of authenticity. A special sticker is also attached to each tumbler confirming its Murano origin.
Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand using only traditional methods and tools, slight variations of colors and differences in patterns can be expected.
