Serve your tea or coffee in the opulent Venetian style and prepare to receive many compliments with our uniquely beautiful Murano Glass cup and saucer set. Each Murano Glass cup and saucer is created entirely by hand in one of the most distinctive and labor-intensive Murano techniques- Millefiori (a thousand flowers). To achieve this look, hundreds of small colorful pieces of glass mosaics with a multitude of patterns inside are created first, then gathered onto the blown glass shape and fused together in special furnaces to create the unusual and festive Murano Glass pieces. A mix of rich colors, unusual patterns, and fine craftsmanship make this Murano coffee cup an instant conversation piece at the dining table.

A gorgeous reminder of the magic and beauty of Venice, our Murano Millefiori cup and saucer is a great addition to your dining collection, a must-have for those who like to live and entertain in style. This Murano glass cup, or a set of them, also makes a wonderful gift of Venetian elegance and Italian style for special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, or anniversaries.
  • Measurements: The Murano Glass Cup measures approximately 2-1/2 inches in height and 3 inches in diameter at the top. The saucer measures about 5 inches in diameter.
  • This coffee set is very well packaged to avoid damage in transit and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
  • Important: to avoid thermal shock, which occurs when glassware undergoes a quick and drastic temperature change, do not pour boiling water into this cup. You can serve warm, but not hot, drinks in it if you gradually warm up the cup first. Also, Murano Glass is NOT dishwasher or microwave safe and should be washed by hand with warm water and mild soap.
  • Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.

Workmanship



Murano Glass Millefiori is a unique glass-making technique, which results in bright mosaic-like multicolor appearance of the glass. Millefiori vases, bowls, figurines, ornaments, tableware and drinking glasses are crafted by hand in Murano Glass factories using Murano masters' original method that has changed little over the centuries. To achieve the look of Millefiori glass, the master artisans of Murano use special locally-made Millefiori glass canes, which are then hand-cut into small disc-shaped pieces and sorted by color in separate bowls. Next, the master heats up a blob of transparent or colored glass and dips it into the bowls with Millefiori pieces to achieve a specific design and color pattern. The Millefiori beads immediately stick to the hot surface of the glass, and once the intended design is formed, the glassmakers puts the glass blob back into the furnace to make the Millefiori pieces on the surface fully fuse with the base glass layer to form a single surface. Afterwards, the glass artisan goes to his special bench, where he blows, forms, and shapes the glass with pliers and scissors to make the intended object, be it a Murano Glass vase, bowl, Christmas ornament, or a sculpture. The resulting piece is an art glass object that is unique and beautiful.
