A distinct Murano Millefiori blown glass bottle of ancient green color flowered with beautiful sparkling pattern of murrini, the children candy like pieces cut from long glass canes. The dimensions of the bottle are 17 centimeters high, 11 centimeters wide and 6 centimeters thick. Its base is 7x5 centimeters. The bottle is not symmetric typical to artisan handmade blown glass. The combined deep antique green color of the bottle and the vivid flowing color spiral waves of the murrini cubes create an unusual image of vitrage effect of light and color.
The millefiori (thousand flowers in Italian) is colored patterns or murrini slices made in a glass cane that are revealed when cut in cross-sections. They can be circular or square patterns or detailed designs of shapes. The cane is handmade by wrapping multiple layers of hot melted glass This ancient glass artistry is special to Venetian glass makers although others adopted it as well.
