Venice, the ancient and majestic Italian city, is famous all over the world as the floating city. It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world and is absolutely unique. If you visit Venice, you will remember it for a lifetime. Venice includes more than one hundred large and small islets, almost two hundred canals. Besides being on water, the city is known for its history, canals, gondolas, art and one element in particular: the architecture.
Venice has that timeless atmosphere, where you feel you’re in Medieval times, thanks to the beauty of the Palazzi (Italian for palaces). They date back to the 15th and 16th centuries when Venice was one of the richest cities of the world and the luxury and rich beauty of the Palazzi show exactly that.
Venice, shrouded in a light mist rising from the turquoise waters of local canals, labyrinth of unique palaces and bridges, what could be more mysterious and attractive to travelers? But this city is also loved by romantics and newlyweds, as well as by art lovers who dream of getting to know the richest cultural heritage of this Italian city. The most attractive Venetian palaces are found with the graceful facades along the Grand Canal, they demonstrate to all those who enter the power of Venice and its living history, embodied in these architectural wonders in Gothic, Baroque, classical style. These famous Venetian palaces are not only beautiful on the outside, but they are lush and luxurious on the inside – many have preserved their historical interiors with ancient decorations, furniture and household items from the Middle Ages, but one particular element catches everyone’s attention: Murano Glass decorations and art pieces.
What makes Murano Glass so famous is its beauty, but its history is just as fascinating. Murano glass takes its name from the little island where it is made, which is part of a network of tiny islands in the Venice lagoon. This glass blowing process is an art passed from generation to generation since the 13th century and it is still handmade with the same techniques and tools used then. Behind each piece there is an eight hundred years old tradition and techniques the masters have learned and taught for all this time, preserving the authenticity of the work perfected by their ancestors. Murano glass is very exclusive as it can only be made in the little island of Murano and every piece has a trademark that certifies that it was made at a furnace that follows the traditional glass blowing process.
Murano glass goblets are famous for elegant shapes and beautiful colors. Masters achieve these rich colors by adding different minerals into the mix. Traditionally, gold and silver specks are added into the glass, making the piece even more luxurious. This gives any object a glowing effect, as the specks reflect the light and can bright up the room. Being hand-made one by one by the glass masters, every creation is different from another, so if you buy something made of Murano glass, you’ll have a unique piece that only you own.
Many things can be made with Murano glass, like vases, centerpieces, sculptures, and much more. But because we are talking about Venetian palazzi, one particular type of decoration that dates back to those times comes to mind: the luxurious and eclectic Murano glass goblets. One of the most valuable creations of glass blowing, the goblet exudes a luxury that makes you think of powerful kings and brave knights. Being present in many legends and myths, goblets have a magical charm that enchants anyone. It is an exceptional product not only for its exquisite decoration, but also for its incredible lightness: you’ll feel the ethereal light of feathers in your hands. Many of the designs are a reproduction of the early 16th century glasses, and the details that Murano masters bless the glass are truly breathtaking.
There are various types of goblets. The Decorative goblets have a modern look and can be easily matched with any décor style. The Limited Series are the more luxurious and display peak elegance of blown glass. The Medieval style goblets are perfect for history-lovers who want a touch of mystery into their homes.
