This collection of fish by Gambaro & Poggi is the perfect symbol of Venice. The fish, in fact, embodies the peculiar shape of Venice, one of the many features that make the city absolutely unique.

This collection includes two series of sea animals: blowfish and flat fish. The typical feature of the blowfish is its round, inflated shape. The body features gold leaf on red glass, and its base bears an exquisite mosaic of millefiori murrine, typical of Muranese tradition.

The animal's defined fins, tail and mouth are coated in gold leaf. This fish is available in two sizes, large and small: a splendid collectible home accessory!

Like all products born from the creativity of Murano's master glassmakers, this fish is one-of-a-kind: any small variations are typical and a witness to its handcrafted quality.



Gambaro & Tagliapietra srl Glass Company is born as an evolution of a famous and historic Murano glass furnace, Vetreria Artistica Gambaro & Poggi Glass Company.It was founded in 1974 by Mario Gambaro and Bruno Poggi.

Their company soon became popular for their refined products and their new stiles and shapes.

Gambaro & Poggi has exalted the traditional Murano Glass techniques, and has experimented with new ones, to make its objects modern and in line with the times. Following this perspective of innovation, after the retirement of Mario, the furnace has now become Gambaro e Tagliapietra Srl Murano Glass Studio. His heirs and the young glass master Matteo Tagliapietra, are there to continue a 40 years old history, with a new innovative spirit and the same passion of everyday.

Every piece is expertly made by hand, controlled, authenticated by master Matteo Tagliapietra’s signature engraved on it, and it comes with stickers and warranty certificates which give details of its quality and origin.

Gambaro & Tagliapietra Srl is associated to Consorzio Promovetro, which comprehends leading artisan companies, specialised in this traditional handmade production, and respecting the high quality Murano Glass standards. It is also licensee of the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark (code number 022), given by the Regione del Veneto only to the glass companies of the island of Murano.
