Murano Glass Pear, Red with White Macchia , Hand Blown in Italy


3 in stock

SKU: macchia/red/pear Categories: , , Tag:


Our Murano glass fruit is handmade, blown glass from the island of Murano. This blown glass pear starts from glass cane that is manipulated over a torch; heating and stretching and then blowing into the molten glass to shape. The artist then heats the corresponding colored cane to create the “Macchie”—in this case it’s a red pear with white macchie (stains or spots) to paint spots onto the pear in molten glass. This Macchia or “stained” pear has the color added just before it is fired in a furnace and 18k gold foil is applied giving it a regal and gilded effect.

Our Italian fruit collection includes oranges, apples, lemons, limes, grapes, plums, pineapples and pears. Each stunning piece is hand crafted by master artisans on the Island of Murano. Collect them all for a colorful and rich fruit basket that will impress the most discerning guests.

Measures approximately 3″ in length and 2″ in width.
