Narrow-necked Murano glass vase with grey veining and aventurine
A lovely tall narrow-necked Murano glass vase with a beautiful grey marbled effect. This look is created during the blowing process. The glass-master applies the "veins" with a brush. The marbling also contains aventurine. This material is a coppery-coloured glitter, which was considered to be a precious metal in 19th century Venice.
This is a very time-consuming process, as it is all done by hand. What is more, as the vases in our collections are made individually in studios, no two will be identical.
The item available to order from this page is the taller vase in the foreground. please get in touch with us if you would like to order the smaller vase in the background.
