Murano Faceted Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

Back to Glass Encyclopedia Home

Faceted items similar to the ones shown below are most often attributed to Mandruzzato, who have been making this style of glassware for many years. However there have since been several other factories in the Murano region which have made pieces in this style, and as such it is difficult to be certain of the manufacturer without labels or signatures present. Other well known manufacturers that have produced glassware in this faceted style include Campanella, V. Nason, Formia and Oball.
