Mandruzzato™ Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

Back to Glass Encyclopedia Home

Mandruzzato™ was founded in 1934 on the island of Murano, Venice, Italy, by Benjamin Mandruzzato. After Benjamin died in 1954, the factory was run by his son Luigi Mandruzzato. In 1965 Luigi was joined by his son, Gianfranco Mandruzzato, who took over the running of the company two years later. At first the company made glass lighting fixtures, and then began producing ornaments, vases, ashtrays, and other art glass. Mandruzzato is probably best known for their geometric shaped vases and bowls, inspired by earlier work by Luigi and Gianfranco in collaboration with Pablo Picasso. The firm is now run by Gianfranco's son Alessandro Mandruzzato and became fully trademarked in 2011.
