Arte Nuova

Arte Nuova glass - shown below is our current range of vases, bowls and other decorative vintage collectable Venetian glassware by Arte Nuova of Murano, Venice, Italy.

The Arte Nuova glass factory was founded on the island of Murano, Venice, Italy, in 1954. There is precious little information available about this company. It was only open for a relatively short period of time, and different sources give the closing date as 1965 or 1968. During this time, Arte Nuova become known for their high quality work using the Sommerso technique, winning prizes at the 1958 world fair in Brussels. Known labels include a rectangular red label that reads "Arte Nuova Murano, Grand Prize, Genuine Venetian Glass, World Fair Brussels, 1958", and a circular red label that reads "Arte Nuova Murano, Pustetto & Zanetti, Made in Italy". According to online sources, glassmakers and designers involved with the factory include Itamo Pustetto, Licio Zanetti, Mario Fuga, Aldo Fuga, Nino D'Este, and Alessandro Lenarda.
