Vintage Vitreo Murano Bowls
These vintage Vitreo Murano bowls were handmade in Italy. The optic twist design includes colorful swirls in bright colors with gold flecks. In excellent vintage condition.
Murano's glassmakers held a monopoly on high-quality glassmaking for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including optically clear glass, enamelled glass (smalto), glass with threads of gold (aventurine), multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation gemstones made of glass. Today, the artisans of Murano still employ these centuries-old techniques, crafting everything from contemporary art glass and glass jewelry to Murano glass chandeliers and wine stoppers.
