An exclusive Murrine glass table accessory for a My Venice style mise en place.
The art of Venetian murrine glass had an important increase in the 19th century. In particular, the term ‘murrino‘ or ‘a murrina‘ indicates both the working and the artistic composition of sections of coloured glass pipes assembled to form a design. The origin of the word derives from Roman era murrha (or fluorite) pottery, which was highly prized for the variety and brightness of its colours and from which Venetian glass masters drew inspiration.
Valuable examples of Venetian glass artwork can be found in the world’s most important glass museums.
Production area: Murano (VE)
