#788 Venetian Golden Hand-Blown Glass

Acquired 2017

Made in Italy, from Uno Alla Volta, this elegant delicate piece is a golden nativity scene made one at a time from mouth blowing borosilicate glass and features 24k gold accents and a touch of glitter. When creating each glass nativity scene, Luigi, Roberto, and Monica carry on the tradition of their father, Giovanni Battista, by using crafting skills he taught them. The careful crafting on this golden nativity truly preserves the, often forgotten, sanctity of Christmas. My piece is handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, whose theme and definition is ‘One At A Time'. Mail Order purchase price, $98. October 2017.
