Murano glass Mask made in crystal with gold leaf and submerged murrinas.
The mask of Zanni was born in the second half of the fifteenth century as the poorest and most ignorant servant.
Sometimes, in fact, he is shrewd and cheats honest people, to satisfy the hunger that continually torments him. Sometimes, however, he is foolish and clumsy, and his job is to entertain the audience with jokes and acrobatics.
Handmade by a selected artisan in Venice, using the traditional Muranese techniques.
Any small defects or difference in measurements and colours as reported here are to be considered as evidence of this craftmanship, and especially as an evidence of uniqueness of each single piece.
Please, note that the murrinas color combinations are different for every piece.
