Tazza


Description Conservation Exhibitions Credit
Description Beautiful glass bowls, to be used at table, perhaps for fruit, were a luxury during the Renaissance. This tazza (the Italian term for a footed bowl) exhibits the slight brown-green cast to the clear glass as well as the blue bands of glass that are found on Venetian glass around 1500. Venice, more specifically the nearby island of Murano, was the most famous center for the production of high-quality glass of the time.
