An almost transparent glass tray coloured golden brown, through which you can see centuries of Venetian craft.
The City of Canals never stops revealing further depths of its beauty. The home of the Medicis, the gondolas and lagoons, holds a history of glass craft that was once the envy of the world. The tones of the Earth colour this tray, a reflective and romantic receptacle.
By the Crusades era, glorious glassmaking was synonymous with Venice. In 1291 the equipment crossed the water to the island of Murano and made it home. In the 15th century, glass-blowing genius Angelo Barovier created Cristallo: almost colourless transparent glass. But Murano couldn't keep its secrets forever: by the end of the 15th century, Venetians sought a better life in Northern Europe, taking their craft with them. The workers founded factories to share the skills learned in Murano, and the world is all the more beautiful for it.
A perfect gift for the man or woman in your life. Rest it by your bedside to hold your watches or jewellery, or hold chocolates and bonbons for a sweet-treat-that's-just-in-reach atop your coffee table.
