Since the mid-1400's, when Murano glass masters invented the world's first truly clear glass and refined techniques for sculpting it into delicate, thin-walled, drinking vessels, Murano glass goblets and wine glasses have been admired and desired all over the world. But, don't think for a moment that the Murano glass masters were satisfied with having achieved plain brilliance. The most famous Murano glass goblets and wine glasses are "tipetti", large elegant glasses with intricately sculpted stems adorned with birds, animals, flowers and fruits. These became popular with European royalty during the baroque period and remain signature works of the Murano glass masters today. The Ex Chiesa di Santa Chiara collection of Murano glass goblets, wine glasses and barware includes prime examples of the most classic designs of Murano glass barware throughout the ages as well as some simple and durable sets of Murano glasses suitable for everyday use. These are just a few examples of the Murano glass glasses available in our store.
