This one is super special, it's a handicapped piece but I don't care. Filigrana is very hard to get right, and I'm very happy with this one. I's super fine and almost no blemishes. What a beautiful piece to look at. When you look at it from a distance it gives an impression that it glows, because you can't see the threads so it looks solid white but light comes through it so it appears illuminated from inside, probably that does not sound coherent, but it's hard to explain.
In the third picture I'm attempting to demonstrate conventions of Bohemian masters and Murano masters. Notice that the ball in Murano piece is hollow, but in Bohemian it's solid, I'm not saying this is the rule, but it's common practice.
