Murine glass production started in the Middle East and dates back over 4,000 years ago and was revived by Venetian glass makers. The birth of Murine vases would have been by organizing colored into distinct patterns, whilst the glass molten canes are arranged into a molded form. This example vase was expertly made up of striped aquamarine and white flower pattern with purple and yellow central cores by Fratelli Toso circa 1930. The company Fratelli or Brothers Toso (1902-1980) was created in 1854 by six brothers - Angelo Toso, Giovanni Toso, Ferdinando Toso, Carlo Toso, Gregorio Toso and Liberato Toso. They were joined by Ermanno Toso in 1924 who became artistic director. Literature: The Martin Cohen Collection Final Chapter.
