This charming small Vintage Murano Glass vase is a mid-century art glass piece handmade by talented artisans on the island of Murano in Venice, Italy. It showcases one of the most complex and distinctive Murano Glass techniques called Filigrana, which is hard to come by these days as the level of skill required for it has all but disappeared. The tender pink and white color threads make elaborate patterns solely through fusing glass canes in the furnace in a very special fashion and with no painting over the glass. Elegant filigree design creates the look of sophistication and makes this Murano Glass Small Vase a charming addition to any interior design, be it in classic or contemporary style. It also makes a uniquely appropriate Venetian gift for Christmas or special occasions such as birthdays, career milestones, weddings, or anniversaries.

Workmanship



Murano Glass masters create patterns on glass using only glass-making methods and no paints. This is especially fascinating when they create striped designs or ribbon-like patterns on glasses, tumblers, plates, bowls, and figurines, resulting in a unique artistic look that is the long-time specialty of Murano Glass artisans. To create that look, the masters heat up the glass mass on a special rod, twist, turn and shape it into the piece they need, then use a helper to come and carefully pour a thin line of stretched liquid glass on top of the object in a specific pattern, which after careful and methodical turning results in evenly distributed stripes or other geometrical patterns.
