Acanthus is the synthesis of the Ercole Moretti glassmaker style. This decorative glass plate is entirely made of “millefiori” murrine, in romantic blue shades, fascinating and hypnotic at first glance. To classify it as a simple plate would be limiting: this is a painting, a poem spoken in the language of the Moretti family, which has specialized in murrine for more than a century.
The perfectly arranged murrina cane sections form a breathtakingly colourful composition with all its impossibly tiny flower shapes, and its beauty stands out in any setting. Amidst the many shapes, the letter "M" stands out, clearly identifying the producer Ercole Moretti.
As these compositions are arranged entirely by hand, the patterns always vary slightly. The exquisite beauty of these Murano glass masterpieces is precisely in their uniqueness, born from a single creative inspiration of the glassmaker.
