Made up of loads of multicoloured floral Millefiori murrine canes! A fabulous item, would make an excellent display piece.This gorgeous Murano piece is showcasing the most popular Murano glass technique - Millefiori (translated from Italian as a thousand flowers). Murano masters use this ancient glassmaking method with great precision, creating ever-more-complex designs and shapes, which earn them worldwide fame. This very complicated technique is based on combining lots of tiny glass mosaic pieces and manipulating them by hand and in the furnace. This results in pieces that are unique, colorful, and mesmerizing.
