Murano Glass Pendants
Ercole Moretti & F.lli was established in 1911 by the three Moretti brothers, Ercole, Norberto and Iginio, for the production of two of the most traditional glass beads, the classical 'Chevron', and the 'Millefiori' mosaic.
The company has never interrupted its activity that continues still today under the management of the sons and grandchildren of the three original founders.
Obviously, along the years, the range of products has been greatly expanded, and 'Chevron', and 'Millefiori' are now produced alongside a host of other Venetian beads, such as 'Africa' mosaic beads, 'Sommerso', 'Fiorato', adventurine glass beads, decorated with gold and silver leaf, semi-precious stone imitations, and many more.
One of the favourite techniques has always been murrine working, leading in the early 70's to the production of medallions that enjoyed an immediate success due to the originality of the idea and the perfection of the workmanship. They were later followed by small plates and bowls, refined objects reviving the complex and fascinating technique of ancient Roman murrine glass.
