These magnificent Hand-Painted crystal tumblers evoke the many examples of Venetian and Murano glass—both historic and contemporary—in the extraordinary glass collections of our National Museum of American History. Why is Italian glass curated in our American History Museum? European glass—especially Venetian and Murano glass—was often brought back by American tourists as gifts and mementoes of their Italian sojourn.
