Murano Glass

Murano Glass

      Murano glass is a famous product of the Venetian island of Murano. Located off the shore of Venice, Italy, Murano has been a commercial port as far back as the 7th century. By the 10th century, the city had become well known for its glassmakers, who created unique Murano glass. While Murano glassmakers have settled and operate elsewhere, some say authentic Murano glass is fabricated only in Murano. Today only few factories use the Artistic Glass Murano® trade mark of origin, that certifies products in glass made on the island of Murano, introduced and regulated by Region of Veneto Law no.70 of the 23/12/1994.
      Murano’s glassmakers held a monopoly on quality glassmaking for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline glass, enamelled glass (smalto), glass with threads of gold (aventurine), multicoloured glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation emstones made of glass. Sometimes 24 karat gold and silver flakes are used in the making of murano glass.
      Some of our murano glass art is made by Oscar Zanetti: Zanetti galery website
