Millefiori Paperweight

 


This gorgeous MURANO millefiori paperweight features a fantastic complex cane design with blue white red murrine on confetti ground. A simply wonderful w8.

I'm listing a bunch of Murano millefiori paperweights this week, and have included a photo of the group. This listing is for the one featured in the large photo at the top of this page only.

This piece is roughly 2-1/4" wide, 1-5/8" high, and has a ship weight of 11 ounces.

This lovely Murano paperweight is unlabeled.

I've included an assortment of photos, some with flash some without.

This item is in great condition. No Scratches, No cracks, No Dings, No Dangs, Not even a Darn. Like every paperweight, vase, or  piece of art glass, light scratches on the bottom, from normal shelf wear, are to be expected, and will not be noted here.

I have included a pic with a Fresca can to show scale. The Fresca is NOT included, though, if you add an extra five bucks, I'll throw in the can.

Yes, of course I combine shipping. However, some items cannot be combined, for example, paperweights and vases/perfume bottles do not ship well together. If in doubt, please ask.

 

 

 

 

My blind pup SamE claims this comes from a pet free household, which is most certainly true since he definitely does NOT consider himself to be a pet, and secondly dogs never ever lie, lie down yes, but lie? Never!

 

 

 

Millefiori Glass

Millefiori is a very complicated and painstaking glassmaking technique requiring an exceptionally high level of skill starts with a glass rod prepared in a special way.

The cane contains multiple layers of semi-liquid glass paste applied one-on-top-of-another around the cylindrical rod. Each layer is molded to have a certain shape (often star or flower-like) and color.

The resulting canes are pulled like taffy, to the size of a pencil. The canes are then bundled and cut into 6-inch sections and heated to fuse.

This creates a pleasing geometric distribution of the canes to look like bunches of flowers.

The paperweight then has more layers of molten glass applied and shaped into a globe.

 

 

Murano Glass

The term "Murano Glass" defines glass produced on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. There are many different manufacturers, both past and present, based on Murano.

The history of Murano Glass began in 1291, when concerns about the risk of fire to the mainly wooden buildings of Venice lead to the many glass manufacturers there being ordered to move their premises to the small island of Murano, just off the coast of Venice, Italy.

Murano was already a busy trade port at the time. Murano glass artists soon became renowned for their skills in glass design, and had a monopoly on glassware production for several centuries.

The Murano glass industry boomed during the 1950's/60's, exporting a vast amount of Venetian glassware as well as producing a large quantity of glassware for tourists visiting Venice. Murano glass production is still extremely active today.
