Calici Natale 1990 Goblet

This is a goblet. It was designed by Carlo Moretti. It is dated 1990 and we acquired it in 1991. Its medium is blown glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Murano glass refers specifically to the glass made on the Venetian island of Murano, a leader in technically innovative and intricate glassware for centuries. This goblet, one of a group of six made in limited quantities, demonstrates the clarity and quality of the glass. This cobalt-based goblet and its mates are all hand-blown and -finished Murano crystal, and no two are the same.
