The end of the Serenissima Republic in the first place, and also because of a sort of limbo between the glory from the past, the dark times lying ahead.


During this time and until the  come back to semplicity and design of the 20th century contemporary glass era, Murano Glass masters began to produce extremely elaborated items, replacing dolphins, swans and other typical ornamental animals with monsters and beasts, coming from outside cultures (like dragons, serpents, crocodiles etc)
