Murano Glasses

How can you tell if you have a genuine piece of murano glass?

I have several pieces of Authentic Murano Glass.
After some time of collecting it I have come to know it immediately. In the beginning I do not recommend this to new collectors as they can aquire fakes.
It is not that difficult to aquire the knowledge and experience in order for you to be able to do the same.
It is extremely recognizable once you get the hang of it.

Initially each piece that I owned came with the traditional Murano authenticity sticker and was signed (engraved) by the glass artist as well. Not any longer, although most of my pieces are from artisans in Murano and they are signed,
Some of my older pieces are before the artists were accustomed to signing their work.

You can do one of two things to determine if you have a Original Venetian Glass piece.
One, is study using the methods that I have given you below as well as going in person to examine Authentic pieces yourself.
Two, would be to take your glass to a reputable dealer who sells or is the intermediary for selling this glass. They usually do not have a problem in helping others in determing the Authenticity.

A guide to collecting Authentic Murano Glass is Below on the site;
A beginner's Guide to Collecting Murano Glass
http://www.fossilfly.com/collecting_Murano_Glass.htm
Buying Murano Glass.
It is always best to buy authentic Murano Glass pieces, as they are more valuable, and it's always nice to know that your piece was created with care by the Italian masters.

Unfortunately much of the Murano Glass on the internet is "Murano Style" which generally, means that it was made somewhere other than Murano, usually in Asia or Brazil. Authentic Murano Glass is a much higher quality, and after growing used to collecting Murano glass, you will be able to identify authentic Murano Glass at a glance.
However, over the Internet, things are often not what they seem, and you cannot easily inspect the item you are interested in. What it comes down to is the reputation and honest of the dealer. Have they been selling Murano glass for a while? Do they have a good reputation? Do they sell only Murano glass or a little of everything, including Murano Glass? How long have they been in business? Do they offer a generous return policy?

Promovetro, the consortium of Glass Blowers in Venice is trying to stem the flood of counterfeit imports from Asia. New holographic stickers on the glass identifies which furnace made the item by using a numeric system. For more information on this initiative, visit their website for a list of member companies, and their identification numbers of each furnace. This new image is beginning to replace the gold foil oval "Made in Murano, Italy" familiar to so many.

Buying Pre-Owned Murano Glass...............
We recommend that collectors investing a sizeable sum of money, buy from reputed retailer or gallery, and ask for a certificate of authenticity showing the date of production and artists information. However for the beginner, it is not necessary to jump right into collecting headfirst. It is more realistic if you ease into collecting by learning all you can about the art and start small.
A great resource for collecting Murano Glass is eBay! Very often you can find pieces ranging from sculptures to jewelry, but again, make sure what you are purchasing is authentic Murano glass, with no "flea bites" or miniscule nicks ,and attributable to a particular furnace.
Beware of "Murano Style" glass, as it is not authentic.
Once collecting glass gets in your blood, you will want to learn all you can about the different techniques of glass blowing and how each technique is used to create a different result. You will begin to realize that you favor some techniques over others, and seek the company or artist that have made this technique their signature style.
Collecting Historic Murano Glass Many people purchase Murano glass for its aesthetic value, but also for its historical art significance.
During the 1950's and 1960'swhen Murano Art Glass was at its height, much of the glass from this era is sought after; especially from the more well know furnaces such as Venini. Many books address this type of Murano Glass, and it is typically sold by galleries.
In closing Murano glass collecting is a rewarding hobby, which can be passed on from generation to generation much like the techniques and traditions of the Muraro Masters.
