Authentic Murano Glass Filigrana Vase. Unique and beautiful in every way, each hand blown glass vase is made one by one by a glass artist in Murano, Italy. Filigrana is a classical glass making technique developed in the sixteenth century on the Venetian island of Murano. Parallel threads of colored glass decorate the vessel in a spiral or in a straight line from top to bottom. Swirls of colored glass wind together for a stunning effect. Fill with your favorite flowers or leave empty and use as a stand alone centerpiece. You will notice something different in their patterns every time you look at it. Approx. 7 1/2″ tall with a circumference of 14″ at its widest and a mouth diameter of 2 1/2″. Use it for flowers or as a piece of art. Comes boxed for easy gift giving. A perfect wedding or housewarming gift – or maybe even a treat for yourself!
