Display Windows: Murano Glass

Murano is an island out in the lagoon close to Venice. It is widely known for its glass factories. I did not choose to visit Murano on this trip, but I saw the Murano glassware everywhere I went. It is beautiful. Here are a number of examples. Enjoy!

    My sister brought back Murano glass insects for all of us after her trip to Italy. They were so delicate that the one she bought for herself broke when she showed it to us. I’ve never taken mine out of the box because I’m afraid I’ll break it.

      The few things I bought were not that delicate. Glass dishes and pendants.
