Exceptional Murano Glass Goblet, Wine Glass
A truly exceptional example of a baroque style Murano glass goblet. This is a stunning handmade Murano glass goblet with a finely sculpted multidimensional stem of red and gold. It is as much a sculpture as it is a "glass". This large piece measures 31 centimeters by 11 centimeters; 12.2 inches by 4.3 inches.
Murano glass goblets, also called "tipetti" or calici became famous during the baroque period when the glass masters of Murano responded to competition from other European glass producers by infusing their work with ever more intricate combinations of shapes and colors. Murano glass goblets with intricately sculpted stems, often including swans, snakes or flowers, were coveted by nobility throughout Europe.
