Experience the tranquil pleasure of a tropical fish aquarium without the need for feeding and maintenance. Beautifully expressing the strong tie between the tiny islands of Venice and the briny lagoon in which they reside, this Murano Glass Aquarium is handmade by Murano glass blowers. Colorful fish, underwater reeds, and decorations are created from glass rods, called murrina, then skillfully embedded (while nearly molten) within the glass “tank” of this enchanting Murano Glass Aquarium. The result is a masterful illusion of movement made more vibrant and magical in natural light. Made in Italy. Each will vary, making it truly one-of-a-kind.

Museum Story

This extraordinary Murano Glass Aquarium calls to mind the breathtaking interactive experience offered by our National Museum of Natural History’s Sant Ocean Hall while celebrating the exceptional collection of Murano glass curated by our National Museum of American History. Renowned the world over for their centuries-long mastery of the fluid art of mouth-blown glass, Murano glass artisans create unique works of heirloom art.

It looks great on the windowsill by my computer desk so I could look at it often. Fish could help lower your high blood pressure and make you feel relaxing when looking at it. I did order one more for my living room, too! Very colorful and very cheerful. Beautiful, too! Arizona

It is a beautiful addition to our home. I purchased it as gift for my husband. It's large enough to be seen across the room, and the colors are vivid, sharp. It almost fools the eye that these fish are really swimming, while it sparkles in the light. We're very pleased with this purchase. Wonderful keepsake. Albany, GA

I was a little disappointed when I received mine because the colors were not as vibrant, saturated and varied as that in the catalog picture. I know that there has to be variation because the item is handmade, but care must be done when photographing the items for the catalog so that the photos are true to life. Norfolk, VA
