Red vase with murrines
A gorgeous vase, hand-produced in fine red Murano glass, with the addition of murrines. These are small, very thin discs made by arranging glass rods into colourful patterns, and then slicing into cross sections. The finished effect is generally of a small flower, which explains its more common name, 'millefiori'. Murrine glass art is one of the most popular styles of Venetian glass art.
