Ribbon Glass Cup, probably Italy, about 25BC-50AD. 72.1.11​        

You can find our online research guide about murrini here: There are several books in the second tab ("History") which include historical information about murrini. Note that the books with Italian titles are written in both Italian and English. I have also attached a more detailed bibliography on murrini/millefiori/mosaic/cane.

If you wish to borrow copies of library items, please contact your local library.
