Large amber Murano glass flower vase with aventurine
This lovely amber Murano glass vase is made by hand, not only with coloured murrines, but also with fragments of aventurine. Aventurine, or "Avventurina" was considered to be a precious metal during the 19th century, accessible only to the very wealthy. It's made from metal oxides, and the process of creating these tiny copper-coloured flecks is very lengthy and expensive. This is a very luxurious item which will give you pleasure for many years to come.
