Murano Glass

I don't necessarily want to save the little slip of paper that came with the jewel-toned Murano glass vases my parents picked up in Venice, but I do think it would be nice to keep the information.  Here's what it said:

Dear Sir,

These pieces are entirely hand made, and blown by famous Masters, they are worked at 1400-1500 degrees centigrade.

As they are not machine made, small imperfections (as bubbles or slight differences in size) are inevitable, the hands of the masters never reach mechanic precision.
