Our murrina necklaces are part of the Venetian artistic history in glass manufactoring.
The origin of the term can be traced probably to the fact that the ancient Romans called “murrha” (with the meaning of myrrh for the emanated scent) the material that constituted the vases brought to Rome by Pompeo in 61 BC. to the abbot Vincenzo Zanetti who in 1878 defined precisely with this term the glass mosaic vases and bowls that the Romans produced using cane sections. The term murrino glass is also linked to the abbot Vincenzo Zanetti who in 1878 defined with this term the vases and bowls in mosaic glass that the Romans produced using sections of cane.
Nowadays, using the same term, with murrina necklaces we mean a glass object worked by juxtaposing and welding glass rods of a single color or different colors, arranged lengthwise, to the heat of the fire. On other occasions the fusion is obtained with millefiori canes, that is, glass rods in concentric layers with a star or rosette motif.
