The dolphin is a sea animal, and Venice is the queen of the sea. Many corners of the city are adorned by depictions of dophins: just like the lion is king of the terrestrial beasts, the dolphin reigns over all aquatic creatures. In ancient representations, divinities were shown astride dolphins to indicate their domain over the sea: the same dominion of Venice through the centuries.
The dolphin is symbol of Venice ruling over the sea and its might. The “Delfino” collection includes a series of traditional goblets in different shapes and colours: each collectible piece is a unique, precious symbol, a must-have for any lover of fine glass. This red goblet features a handkerchief-shaped cup with the typical lines of the “rigadin” technique, and a dolphin-shaped stem with gold leaf and orange eyes. Due to its exquisite features, this classic Murano glass goblet is for display purposes only, and is not suitable for food or drink.
