Vintage Murano Icepick Millefiori Flowers and Leaf Murrine on Sand Ground

Dimensions: 3-1/2" Diameter & 2" Tall

Makers Mark: Unsigned

Provenance: Unavailable  

Condition: Excellent - there is however a chip to the edge of the base which appears to have occurred during production. This does not detract from the overall aesthetic but is mentioned from transparency. Please see photos and let us know if you need any additional assistance.   

This unique design was probably produced by Ferro & Lazzarini in the 1970s-1980s. The murrine hover over a ground of gritty sand and are anchored by using an icepick tool giving the illusion that the foliage is rising out of the ground.
