AVeM Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

Back to Glass Encyclopedia Home

Arte Vetraria Muranese, or AVeM (A.Ve.M.) for short, was founded in 1932, by several glassblowers - Antonio Luigi Ferro, his son Egidio Ferro, Emilio Nason, and Galliano Ferro. Giulio Radi was technical director. Some early designs were created by the renowned painter Vittori Zecchin.
AVEM are probably best know today for their very popular "Tutti Frutti" range of bowls and vases from the 1950's. The Tutti Frutti range is often wrongly attributed to designer Dino Martens (who never actually worked for AVeM) due to a mistake in a popular book on Murano glass.
