Introducing Our New Murano Glass Partner Program

Since its inception, Murano glass masters have been very cautious abut their craft, realizing what they have mastered needed some kind of secrecy in order to ensure top quality and heritage, and to a lesser degree, to ensure a price monopoly.

For this reason, throughout its history, Murano glass has seen a lot of forgery, as well as having served as an inspiration for many crystal or glass families.

Tiffany glass, Millefiori, Swarovski, Baccarat, Riedel, Steuben, Waterford, Edinburgh, Ajka, etc., are but a few examples of internationally recognized lead glass making companies. While each one has their unique characteristics and differences, they usually have the same commonality of providing top quality and manufacturing techniques, and hardly matched beauty.
