Murano glass is glass made on the Venetian island of Murano, which has specialized in fancy glasswares for centuries. Murano’s glassmakers led Europe for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline 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 are still employing these centuries-old techniques, crafting everything from contemporary art glass and glass figurines to Murano glass chandeliers and wine stoppers, as well as tourist souvenirs. Today, Murano is home to a vast number of factories and a few individual artists' studios making all manner of glass objects from mass marketed stemware to original sculpture.

This beautiful, mid-century, glass sculpture portrays a pheasant resting on a twisted clear glass base with head tilted downward and long tail pointed skyward. The pheasant's head and body is a rich ruby color with azure tail and clear beak and head feathers. The sculpture measures 14 3/4" in height, 5 1/2" in length and 4 1/4" across the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Gorgeous.
