From the legendary glass furnaces of Murano Island in the Venetian Lagoon come these beautiful tumblers that are as unique as Venice itself. Colorful and artistic, this tumbler is the embodiment of the millennial tradition of Murano glassmaking, which started from humble beginnings and flourished into the world-renown art form.
Hundreds of years ago glass blowers, who were always thirsty working next to the hot furnaces, used to make their own tumblers to quench the thirst. Those drinking glasses, called “goti di fornace” are one of the earliest Murano Glass creations, which over the years have become very popular not only with the glass masters but with everyone who likes Murano Glass.
This Venetian drinking glass mixes the elements of the old and the new with its traditional Murano Glass technique, rich blue color infused with genuine silver, and contemporary design featuring abstract elements and bold color play. Great for wine, water, or soft drinks, this tumbler will instantly bring famed Italian style to your dining room, making your guests fall in love with Murano`s original art. Our Modern Art drinking glasses, handcrafted by some of the best Venetian masters, make a wonderful thoughtful gift for the special people in your life.
Measurements: This Murano 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. It holds 12 oz or 350 ml of liquid. The drinking glasses come very well packaged to avoid damage in transit 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.
Sbruffo is a distinctive Murano Glass design, which features rough-surfaces and multiple colors flowing into each other. Sbruffo objects are made by putting layers of colored glass on top of each other streak-by-streak without polishing them, creating an impression of flowing glass. Using multiple colors and unique forms, the masters make tumblers, glasses, vases, bowls, and sculptures with sbruffo designs, which are instantly recognizable as authentic Murano Glass. Only a few Murano Glass factories still create sbruffo art glass objects, and many interior design aficionados, collectors and Murano Glass fans seek these objects of refined beauty and distinct Italian elegance.
