Antique and Vintage Mid-Century Murano Glass Paperweight


Murano glass paperweights date back thousands of years; born almost by accident, they were formed from scraps of coloured glass that would otherwise have been thrown away. Over time, expert blowers have utilised several techniques to bring each paperweight to life, such as millefiori, murrina and lampwork. This results in intricate patterns and scenes formed of multicoloured rods, beads and canes. Please note, this item is a truly original vintage piece with slight imperfections and distinctive characteristics that add to its charm and celebrate its unique history.
