Murano Art Glass of the Pre-War Period

Essays by Jim Oliveira

The art glass made on the island of Murano from the turn of the century to the Second World War was varied, inventive and complex. Dozens of manufacturers made an astonishing array of objects in numerous styles and materials. All of the glass from this period does however have something in common:  a unified essence, a marriage of modernist aesthetics and traditional Murano craftsmanship.

In the Primavera Collection we are presented with a very particular selection of pre-war objects: from exceptionally rare pieces by Barovier and Venini to highly accomplished masterworks from lesser known companies. As we navigate through the collection what defines the experience is exquisite taste with an eye towards quality and rarity rather than pedigree alone.
