Master glassmakers crafted this piece on an island in the Venetian lagoon named Murano. Glassmaking in the area dates back to the seventh century. The glass-makers have been on the island since 1291, when the Venetian Republic ordered the glassmakers to move their foundries because of the fire threat to Venice’s wooden buildings. Throughout history the uniqueness of Murano glass has been taken very seriously with skills often passed down only to family.
