    Great find at the local thrift store. So glad they missed the Murano sticker. A whopping 17 inches tall and 10 inches wide.

    Murano glass is glass made on the Venetian island of Murano, which has specialized in glassware for centuries. Murano’s glassmakers led Europe for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline glass, enamelled glass (smalto), goldstone, multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation gemstones made of glass. Today, the artisans of Murano continue these centuries-old techniques, crafting figurines, chandeliers, glassware and vases, contemporary art glass, beads, and tourist souvenirs.

    Today, Murano is home to a vast number of factories and a few individual artists' studios making all manner of glass objects from mass marketed stemware to original sculpture. The Museo del Vetro (Glass Museum) in the Palazzo Giustinian houses displays on the history of glassmaking as well as glass samples ranging from Egyptian times through the present day.
