Gift & Specialty Shop · Hidden Gem · Shopping
We offer certified and guaranteed Murano: our shop is a trusted reseller of original Murano Glass.

Murano glass is glass made on the Venetian island of Murano, which has specialized in fancy glasswares for centuries.

Murano’s glassmakers led Europe for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline glass, enamelled glass (smalto), golden glass (goldstone), multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation gemstones made of glass. Today, the artisans of Murano are still employing these centuries-old techniques, crafting everything from contemporary art glass and glass figurines to Murano glass chandeliers and wine stoppers, as well as tourist souvenirs.

Today, Murano is home to a vast number of factories and a few individual artists' studios making all manner of glass objects from mass marketed stemware to original sculpture. The Museo del Vetro (Glass Museum) in the Palazzo Giustinian houses displays on the history of glassmaking as well as glass samples ranging from Egyptian times through the present day

  • Wanted to buy some pieces and came across this shop while on a tour. The staff were very friendly and he showed me how to recognize genuine pieces compared to the knock offs. He had some really lovely items in the store and I had lots of problems making a decision lol. He was reasonably priced and wrapped my items with great care to ensure their safe arrival.
