TARTARUGA - Murano Glass Murrina Turtle Figurine
|Size:||Approx. 2.5" x 6.5" x 3.5" Tall|
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.
This turtle is ready to begin his travels; head up, happily knowing that slow and steady wins the race. A beautiful combination of Murrina and solid color glass, the TARTARUGA figurine is perfect for your home or office. Hand-blown in Italy by the best glassblowers on the island of Murano, the TARTARUGA is a unique art piece you will want to display everywhere.
The discounted Red figurines come with felt pads on the feet to fix a barely-detectable wobble.
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!)
Please note: being hand-blown pieces, each piece is truly one-of-a-kind. The color tonality, opacity, and shape are all unique to each individual figurine.
