Story Behind the Art

Present since 1300 in the census books of Murano, Italy, today the prestigious Seguso glass-crafting family has a Brazilian branch. In 1954, Mario Seguso was invited to execute special commemorative pieces for the 400th anniversary of the city of Sao Paulo. Enchanted by Brazil, he decided to settle there and, in this way, to continue the family line in this country. After years of supervising the production of artisan crystal, he assured its continuity through his sons Michel and Adriano, who carry on the Seguso Family tradition. Since then, the Seguso Family has been recognized for the creativity and originality of their work.

  • Don't take a bite yet...
    Verified Purchase

    The paperweight is only 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Although the size was not given in the description, because of the price, I expected the product to be between 4 - 6 inches, triple it's actual size; thus, the reason for a rating of 3. On a positive side, the forbidden fruit is lovely and well-crafted. Never the less, I would still only recommend you take a bite if you do not mind it's size and cost.
