Hand Blown Glass Art

Art and design brings glass to life

This is a good question to ask with the rash of knock-offs on the market today.

Does the art glass made in Murano Italy have an identifying mark?

    yes — the glass workers of Murano have banded together and branded their work to protect their heritage. Glassworks on the island now have an official metal stamp that is pushed into the base of the glass pieces.

    It says MURANO around the edge of a circle.

    Now a chinese shop has imitated the stamp and made a line of work with MARUNO on the stamp to confuse buyers– so look carefully and support ITALIA
