    The Franchini Family

     

    The Franchinis were father and son Venetian glass workers in the mid-1800s. Giacomo Franchini (the son of Giovanni Battista Franchini) worked with his father to create elaborate millefiori canes that incorporated floral patterns and figurative images. His most recognizable and exceptional murrine are those depicting the portraits of the heroes on the Risorgimento – Garibaldi, Cavour, and Victor Emmanuel II – as well as Napoleon III and Emperor Franz Joseph.
