Filigree and Ribbon Mirage Marbles

Filigree and Ribbon Art Glass Marbles

Filigree glass was invented in Murano Italy by glass masters Filippo and Bernardo Catani of the glass house Sirena in 1527, an elaborate process that was indeed difficult to perform. Filigree Glass, unlike conventional blown glass, was suitable for only the uppermost tables of society as it was not common. This elaborate form of Filigrana Glass is responsible for the fame of Murano style glass today. Currently, with new design innovations and increasing levels of workmanship, the patterns able to be embedded in these artglass marbles appear to be limitless, bringing much appreciation and joy to collectors of the beloved Filigree Glass technique.
