    This is a very nice example of a Murano Fish in a typical diving pose mounted on a water effect base. The gold you refer to is known as tutto oro (Gold infused) where 24 carat gold foil in laid on a Marva (working table) and a plod of glass is rolled across it so the gold adheres to the glass. Then when the glass is blown and manipulated, the gold disintegrates giving you the dispersion effect.
