It is known that glass production has been around for a long time and this branch has expanded from window panes in Roman times to chandeliers, jewelry, dishes and even figures. Glass figurines have been in fashion for years, but not many people realize that Murano glass figurines represent a perfect mix of artistic value, beautiful design and quality.
Murano figures are only made in one place in the world – on the island of Murano off the coast of Venice, Italy. The glass made on this island is the most coveted glass in the world and has a rich heritage and centuries-old history. In 1291, all glassmakers in Venice were driven out of their ovens in largely wooden Venice due to the risk of fire. The government decree prompted them to move to Murano Island, and since then they have lived there for generations and produce some of the largest glasses in the world.
Handmade with passion and skill, using the instruments and techniques that have hardly changed since ancient times, Murano figures are beautiful and unique. They range from classic to modern and are available in different sizes. They are perfect for emphasizing your interior design and creating a highlight in every room of your home or office.
If you want to own a Murano figure, there are many things to consider before buying one. If you don’t physically buy your figure in Murano, first make sure you’re dealing with a reputable seller who only stocks authentic Murano glass. To do this, you need to know whether the seller or the manufacturer of the figures is a member of the Consortium Promovetro, the only organization in the Venetian glass industry that promotes the authenticity of Murano glass against the multitude of counterfeits and counterfeits available today. The consortium’s website represents over 70 craft and industrial companies in Murano and Venice. Since its inception, Promovetro has worked hard to promote the image of Murano’s artistic glass, with the stated intention of preserving, protecting and defending Murano’s thousand-year-old glass art while promoting, developing and assisting in its important marketing cultural heritage in the world.
Second, you need to choose a form, size, and style that works best for you. Each Murano glass figure is handmade, so there are many styles, colors and shapes available. There are animal figures, birds, flowers, clowns, orchestral musicians, gondoliers and many other forms. All famous Murano techniques can be used to make figures, from Millefiori to Fenicio to Avventurina. If you have found the best possible option to complement your home decor or to expand your figure collection, look for these special opportunities among Murano glass manufacturers and importers, even if you cannot visit Murano and order directly. From the glass maker there someone has it available in his shop or on his website.
Finally, you need to consider where you want to place it. A real Murano glass figure is not just a decoration, but a stylish, well-designed handmade treasure with a rich history. It is a reminder of the beauty and romance of Venice that will create a special atmosphere in your home or office. If you place it on an open shelf or table where it can catch and reflect light, it becomes a highlight of the room. However, keep in mind that it needs to work well with the rest of your decor and color schemes.
