Vintage Murano Glass Fratelli Toso Millefiori Trinket Box Vanity Casket Trunk
Vintage Murano Glass Fratelli Toso Millefiori Trinket Box Vanity Casket Trunk. Gorgeous vintage millefiori casket Box designed by Fratelli Toso for Marino.
This beautiful box has brass accents and trim in this classic form. Entire box is filled with millefiori from top to bottom.Just beautiful craftsmanship in this unique rare collectors box. This is a very heavy glass piece and is hand blown and may show imperfections in the glass. Please see photos for condition and details. Absolutely beautiful piece of glass. Fitted frame for cover and edge of opening as well as being hinged. Metal work is gold in color and has embossed decoration. Perfectly blown Millefiori Italian Glass. I have been unable to find any markings / makers marks. All glass surfaces are matte finished and is smooth to the touch. Piece is in fantastic condition having only one small chip on the interior where the cover meets the metal frame, please see last photo and the comparison to a ballpoint pen tip.
This cannot be seen from the outside and is very difficult to see u less youre looking for it. This is extremely minimal given the delicate nature of this type of fused glass.
