Product Description

The art of Venetian murrine glass had an important rise in the 19th century. Specifically, the term “murrino” or “a murrina” denotes both the working and artistic composition of sections of colored glass rods assembled to form a design. The origin of the word draws reference from Roman-era murrha (or fluorite) pottery, which was highly prized in ancient times for the variety and vibrancy of its colors and from which Venetian master glassmakers drew inspiration.

Valuable examples of objects with artistic workmanship in Venetian glass can be found in the world’s most important glass museums.

Production area: Murano (VE)
