Stocking up for the holidays!

Although we keep Murano glass products in stock year round, nothing feels like the holidays more than receiving a nice big Murano glass shipment! I’m sure you’ve all seen the beautiful Murano glass Christmas ornaments that we have available along with tumblers, cute animal figurines and more!

The showstopper of this shipment is the GOTO ARGENTO Murano glass tumbler. It  has been updated with a new look and it is even more stunning than before. The brilliant colors of the melted glass pieces, silver leaves and unique murrina decorates all around the exterior of the tumbler, coming together like a painting. What’s more amazing about the GOTO ARGENTO is the texture. You have the smoother areas where the glass pieces have melted completely, slightly more bumpy areas (a bit like drops of paint) where the glass pieces have only partially melted and of course, the “dimples” that have been created during the whole glass-blowing process.

Also included in this shipment is a Murano glass tumbler of my own! I received the GOTO SBRUFFO Murano glass tumbler in aqua and green and I have been thoroughly enjoying it. Rather than the glass pieces and murrina of the GOTO ARGENTO, the GOTO SBRUFFO features ribbons of colored glass layered around the tumbler. Depending on the color scheme you choose, you may get a tumbler with either gold or silver leaves embedded in the glass. Mine has silver leaves!
