Salviati’s mosaics for the Basilica of San Marco helped to restore civic pride in Venetian monuments. Vincenzo Moretti began work at Salviati’s factory as a maker of the colorful glass pastes used in mosaics. He later turned his talents to millefiori glass. This bowl features Moretti’s signature pattern of tulips.
