Two-colored Murano vase with lid.
Elegant vase with lid made in Murano. Perfect as a tobacco holder.
Murano’s special glassblowing process is over a thousand years old, having been re-discovered by the local artisans from the ancient Roman glassware at the end of the first millennium and continuously developed and enhanced upon ever since.
The glass is made from silica, soda, lime and potassium melted together in a special furnace at a temperature of 1500°C to reach a liquid state. The liquid glass mixture is then mouth-blown and/or hand-crafted by master glassmakers in a series of elaborate steps using sophisticated techniques and resulting in unique creations.
