Although Master Imperio Rossi is usually the Maestro, when it comes to sculptures Master Mario Costantini takes over and Maestro Imperio Rossi assumes the role of main helper (Servente). The Fusione line of Murano glass products is a unique expression of Maestro Costantini's artistic style. Small "Murrina" pieces are fused together to form a colorful glass pattern. When you admire a genuine Murano glass artwork created by Maestro Costantini and his team, you can see and feel his creativity mixed with a thousand years of tradition and mastery come to life.
The brilliance of the Cane Murano glass dog figurine shines through its immaculate detail and vivid colors. Hand-blown in Italy by the best glassblowers on the island of Murano, the Cane is a unique art piece you will want to display everywhere; Whether it is at home or at the office, show your appreciation for Murano glass!
Can't seem to get enough dog figurines? If you are a fan of Dachshunds, check out the CANE BASSOTTO Murano Glass Dog Sculpture for a different style of Murano glass.
Each glass figurine is certified with the Vetro Artistico® Murano mark, which guarantees it as having been made on the island of Murano using traditional techniques of Master Muranese glassmakers. It also bears the signature of Master Costantini, its creator (if you see something that looks like a scratch, you've found the signature!)

P.S. We are not entirely sure exactly what breed of dog this figurine embodies. It is certainly a scent hound with ears that can help it gather the scent, but we cannot pinpoint which kind. There are some fifteen breeds of scent hounds and to me it most closely resembles the Basset Hound. Am I right or wrong? I would like to hear what you think.
