All Venetian Glass products sold in our online store are hand-made by skilled master glass-blowers in a traditional factory on Murano Island in Venice, Italy. Every piece is crafted one-at-a-time using traditional glass-making techniques and every product is special and unique.
There are no middle-men. We work directly with multiple Murano-based artisans, factories and workshops, each specializing in its own type of products or glass-blowing technique. We have long-standing personal relationships with the masters and bring you their finest creations.
We personally curate our Murano Glass selection to bring you the best quality and styles. Many pieces we carry can be found in high-end Murano Glass stores and galleries in Italy. We travel to Venice often and continue to update our catalog with new and popular designs. Our selection is better than in Venetian Glass stores and our prices are lower.
Is your Murano Glass piece authentic? Determining original Murano Glass is no easy task, especially since handmade Venetian glass products have become so popular, and many sellers sell look-alikes that are not made on Murano or even in Italy. We give you 5 steps to determine authentic Murano Glass.
To buy Murano Glass online or shop for glassware in Venice you need to know how to find original Murano Glass, pay the right price, and safely ship it home. We suggest shopping online to get more selection and better prices, but we help you shop in Venice if you want to bring home a souvenir from Italy.
Murano Glass also known as Venetian Glass is hand-made blown glassware crafted using special methods, techniques, and tools from silica, soda, lime and potassium melted together in a special furnace. This glass-making process was invented in Venice over 1,000 years ago and still survives today.
