Bucella Cristalli is a retailer on the island of Murano, Venice, Italy, that also had or has a grinding and polishing facility, which was supplied by "rough" pieces from other Murano furnaces. It is owned by Renzo Bucella. He had a partner in the business named Giovanni Battista Fort, until they went separate ways at around 1982-84. We are not sure what year the company was founded. When the Consorzio Venezia Vetro was established as a method of guaranteeing and promoting authentic Murano glass, Bucella Cristalli was assigned the Vetri Murano (VM) number code "019".
Known suppliers: Murano factories that are known to have supplied / been sold by Bucella Cristalli include - Oball, De Biasi, and Studio Cimaro.
Sources: Much of this information comes from a discussion with glass Maestro Dimitri Cimarosto, in a Facebook based Murano glass study group. Dimitri supplied Bucella with his works from 2000 - 2008.
