Millefiori - (Glass)

Millefiori - (Glass) (Italian='a thousand flowers') The term applies to a technique of Roman glass mosaic in which bundles of slender glass rods of varied colors were fused together in a cylinder which was drawn out while still plastic and afterwards cut into transverse sections. The process was revived by Venetian glassmakers in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and again in France and England in the nineteenth century. Commonly used in paperweights.
