Venini - the largest and most successful of the Murano glass furnaces, still in business in Murano. Established in 1925 by Paolo Venini. Venini embraced Modernism trends in art and architecture with their new designs in elegant shapes and colors.
Venini also was known for their use of designers to bring new ideas to Murano. Their designers included Napoleon Martinuzzi, Tommaso Buzzi, Carlo Scarpa, Gio Ponti, Tyra Lundgren, and Fulvio Bianconi. Venini still produces a beautiful line of art vases, some are classic designs, and some new designs introduced every year. Take great care, as occasionally the new “classic” vases are mistaken for the older originals. Venini vases are signed, and the type of signature can give a clue to the age of the piece.
