Hand-Blown Murano Glass Decanter Sets

We went on a buying trip to Italy, and visited Venice.
While in that beautiful city, we sailed to a glass factory on the island of
Murano, where we watched the glassmakers create before our eyes
absolutely fantastic works of art. We were greatly impressed with their
skill at handcrafting these items, and with the quality and strength of
these seemingly fragile objects (our tour guide dropped a goblet on the
marble floor to prove to us the durability of glass fired three times--to
our amazement, the goblet did not break.) We ended up purchasing six
decanter sets, one in each available color, and a fantastic swan.

The decanter sets include: 1 large decanter with a lavishly gilded glass
stopper; 6 glasses; 1 candy dish; and 1 pedestal bonboniere with a top.
Every item is lavishly hand-decorated with a tiny, delicate floral pattern in
24 kt gold and platinum. The glass sparkles beautifully and the colors are
deep and superb.

Each set comes with a Certificate of Authenticity in four languages: the English version reads:

      Certificate of Authenticity. We certify the absolute authenticity of the annexed item concerning to its real handcrafting in Murano by the method called "Third Fire".
The decoration is made with pure gold and platinum and special enamels prepared on purpose for handpainting. The lack of a detailled [sic] certificate must lead you into warning about items of similar appearance but probably of different origin and certainly of different artistical and technical value.
