Product summary

Item #131344 (in stock)

The egg has long been a symbol of new life.   Our richly colored Murano glass egg is celebration of life.  Mouth blown and preciously finished with murrine, a colored pattern.  Luxuriously enhanced with a layer of gold leaf.   One is a thing of beauty.  Imagine a basket or bowl of these jewel tone eggs.  Each egg is unique and one-of-a-kind.  Decorative glass can be found in the museum's permanent collection.   Made in Murano, Italy.

Approx:  2 1/2" x 1 1/2" diameter.

    The Murano eggs are a perfect Easter gift for your older grandchildren. A special work of art as well as a symbol of this important holiday for them to treasure.

    Looks as pictured. Buyers should be aware that, unlike the yellow egg, this one cannot be stood upright. Also that it is hollow inside (and therefore very light) and about the size of a small chicken egg.

    I bought all six. Just like the Murano fruit, They are truly magnificent works of art. These look beautiful in the cobalt blue and amber bowl.

    Anything Murano! I love Murano glass. It is an art all its own. I purchased the beautiful blue egg. Goes well with my Easter decor.

    I bought two of these and they are gorgeous. One was a gift and the recipient loved theirs also. The only problem is that these do not stand on their own. I had expected that the bottom of the egg would be flattened and it would be able to stand for display. Be warned. It will not stand and the egg wiggles and wobbles and rolls. I will have to find a small metal or wooden ring to place it in for display.

    This is a small yet lovely piece of art glass. It is a beautiful accompaniment to the blue Murano glass bird. They are a perfect pair!
