This collection is history: the history of a family, the Ercole Moretti, which has been creating masterpieces since 1911, and the history of the beads strung here in a unique timeline.
They are small witnesses to the evolution of lamp-work beads, their peculiar features and the fashions they followed: "fiorate", with filigree, semi-precious stone replicas, with aventurine, "sommersi", mosaic and rosette, oval, cubic, angular or irregular. Each captures the secrets of its time.
The challenge lies in correctly associating each one to its period, like a complex puzzle or a code to crack. Each bead is perfectly preserved, as if it were made just yesterday! Each of the pieces in the Vintage collection is accompanied by the furnace's guarantee of authenticity of the beads.
Every day Murano artisans realize Murano glass objects. The Master sets up the work and coordinates his “serventi“ which help him in the preparation of the piece using incandescent furnaces: first they draw their desired object on some papers hanging close to the kilns then, once the glass is at the right temperature, the glassmakers shape quickly the material to obtain their glass artwork.
Whether you already visited Venice or not, having this piece of art will allow you to live the “Venetian Dream“. By wearing this authentic jewel, which is entirely made in the heart of Venice, you can live your everyday life with an Italian lifestyle point of view, combining beauty and simplicity.
This product, like all products on YourMurano is handmade blown by some of the most Famous Murano island glassmakers and it represents the emblem of this beautiful Island.
