1950's Italian Murano Glass Millefiori Heart Shaped Paperweight with Perfect Condition Foil "Murano Made In Italy" Sticker

A classic example of Venetian Glass artistry, this paperweight is as beautiful as it is charming. Two glass fish are suspended along with sea plants and and spots of color in the middle of this 1 lb, 3 oz glass heart that measures 4" wide X 4" long X 1 1/4" high (when sitting flat). It appears to be without cosmetic blemishes; there are no bubble pops or cracks. What might appear as a scratch running down a couple of inches from the top cleft of the heart is, as I was informed by a friend who collects Murano Glass, actually a very faint crease that was caused when the piece was formed into a heart shape (regardless of its cause, it is hardly detectable). The foil sticker (an important feature of all true Murano Glass) is flawless
