Description A label on this object (which reads, "Museo Murano") identifies it as a copy of a work in the glass museum in Murano. Salviati's glassblowers often looked to this museum for inspiration. The vessel that served as a model for this work is unknown, but one is depicted in a Salviati catalogue, indicating that multiple copies could have been produced. Multiples are now rare, but there are at least three known Salviati copies of another vessel from the Treasury of Saint Mark's Basilica in Venice.
