Welcome Shabbat into your home in stunning Venetian style by lighting up Shabbat candles in this elegant artistically handcrafted Murano Glass candle holder. This unique candle holder features a genuine Murano Glass base handcrafted over a small flame using avventurina glass-making technique with sparkles throughout.

This Shabbat candle holder is doubly special thanks to its association with Venice - the city that has been a large center of Jewish life and culture in the middle ages, with the vibrant Jewish community that included people who fled from persecution elsewhere in Europe. While far from being a liberal society, Venice was nevertheless more tolerant of Jews than many other places in the middle ages, and despite their relative isolation, Jewish people took part in many aspects of Venetian life.

This bright and beautiful Shabbat candle holder created by local Murano glass artisans stands as a reminder of the thriving Jewish culture and religious tradition that existed in Venice for over 500 years and symbolizes its continuity and strength. This is a fine Jewish gift for Bat Mitzvah or Bar Mitzvah, Hanukkah, housewarming, or any other religious or secular occasion and will fit with both contemporary, modern and traditional home decor.

  • Measurements: This candle holder measures approximately 6 inches in length and 2 inches in width. It consists of a blue and gold Murano Glass base with 2 gold-toned metal holders for Shabbat candles.
  • This candle holder is handcrafted on Murano island by experienced glass masters from a long-established family workshop.
  • It features a sticker of the official Murano Glass Consortium and comes with the Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Because this is a piece of art crafted entirely by hand using a complex technique, each item is unique and no two are exactly the same. The photo is representative of all the ones we have in stock, but may not be exactly the same as the piece you will receive.

Workmanship



Avventurina is an ancient technique of Venetian glass-making, in which tiny pieces of copper are infused into the glass mixture for the unique sparkling effect that is characteristic of authentic Murano Glass. Using lampworking method master artisans heat up specially made glass canes produced by Murano Glass factories, then dip the blob of glass into avventurina shavings, then continue to twist and shape the glass into the design they want to achieve, sometimes also using sterling silver foil, gold foil and other additional accents to highlight the play of colors and create a truly unique piece of authentic Murano Glass. Avventurina glass beads, jewelry, rings, earrings are some of the most recognizable works of Murano Glass.
