Requested by you by paying for all items on. Your hosts, Richard & Karen.There is today, by far, more FAKE Murano glass on the market than there is genuine! INVEST IN THE REAL THING : All genuine Murano art glass is made ONLY on the small island group of MURANO, in Venice Bay, Italy. The enclave's closely guarded formulas, techniques and traditions date back to the thirteenth century-1292. That, and an unparalleled reputation for quality and value helps give genuine Murano glass its exclusivity, collectibility and resultant appreciation factor. So, investing in authentic Murano glass enriches your collection, and. It can often realize increased value s.
Before 1980, most Murano glass was only identified with impermanent paper/foil labels. So the name was easily co-opted by a variety of outside glass makers trying to defraud the public. Post-1980 genuine Murano is much more carefully labeled and/or signed. Glass makers with famous Italian names, working in other countries, having family ancestors who were Murano masters, still don't make the authentic'Murano' glass that carries that.
WATCH OUT FOR THESE : The most egregious Murano glass fraud is carried out by Chinese manufacturers, cranking out crude, cheap fakes and fraudulently labeling them "Murano", as to pass them off as the valuable, genuine article. Please, be aware that many fakes have counterfeit Murano labels and may even say,'Made in Italy'. Fake Brands : " Murano Cristalleria Ann Primrose ", " Murano Minchella Collection ", " Murano Stile d'Art ", " VEISES-MURANO ", or " Murano Glassware " are easily recognized as some of the more common knock-off brands.There also are very common labels reading, "Vetro Eseguito Secondo La Tecnica Dei Maestri Di Murano " (Italian words meaning only : "Glass made according to the techniques of the masters of Murano"). Th at label mislead s to imply that they are made in Murano, which they ARE NOT.
These manufacturers, importers, and retailers are CHEATING YOU! Don't let it happen.
It takes examining and studying hundreds of examples to know for sure, but here is a quick clue. Thumbnail advice: The fakes are usually crude, inferior work, that when labeled almost always say, "Murano" and sometimes even say, "Made in Italy". Murano work is always very high quality with very few bubbles, unless intentional! Fakes seldom have metallic inclusions flakes/dust, a.Aventurine' and when they do it is never real gold or silver. Important is that most fakes are priced very low. At OnMyWatch, we are experienced collectors who only offer genuine, vintage Murano art glass! Feel free to message us, with a photo or item number, for a free opinion. We'll tell you if we think it is genuine!
