Pris and Dave at Effetre in April 2014

We personally hand pick all of our millefiori at the world renowned Effetre factory in Murano/Venice, Italy. Murano Millefiori stocks the traditional millefiori slices (raw cut, no pre-drilled holes) as well as the more unusual ones such as swirls, stars, squares and other designs! All of our millefiori is made in Murano and is COE 104. All millefiori is compatible with Moretti Rods and Moretti glass. Our assortments and color paks are custom blended and cannot be found anywhere else. We offer more single color & design selections than anyplace on earth! We try to keep our retail prices as low as possible and regularly offer many selected styles on sale.


Technical Information:
~ Slices vary from 2mm to 30mm in diameter and thickness from 1/8 inch to 1/2 - 1" (also called 'Grand Tronconi').

COE is 104 - compatible with Moretti Glass & Moretti rods.

Effetre Product Information:

Variations in size, color and thickness of all glass products are to be expected (some are opaque, opaque with some transparency, or totally transparent). Because these are difficult to photograph, clear transparent may appear white in the catalog or the background color on-line. For fusers "black" millefiori is actually dark dark cobalt. Many of the millefiori that appear black or have black veining will have dark dark cobalt which should turn back to the "black" when cooled.
