Barovier & Toso

Barovier & Toso, founded in 1295, is one of the world’s oldest family businesses and one of the world's masters of lighting design. The company is a producer of Venetian glass and chandeliers and is based in Murano, Italy. The company is known for its exquisite Murano glassware, which is handcrafted using traditional techniques passed down through generations of glassmakers.  Specialties include crystalline glass, mother-of-pearl glass, and gold-free cornelian red glass. 
Barovier & Toso's early work was heavily influenced by the Baroque and Rococo styles, and the company was known for its elaborate chandeliers, mirrors, and other decorative objects. In the 20th century, the company began to experiment with more modern and abstract designs, and its pieces became increasingly sculptural. 

During the mid-20th century, Barovier & Toso collaborated with a number of prominent artists and designers, including Ercole Barovier, Napoleone Martinuzzi, and Carlo Scarpa. These collaborations resulted in some of the company's most iconic pieces, which are still highly sought after by collectors today.
Today, Barovier & Toso is one of the most respected names in the world of Murano glass, and its pieces can be found in museums and private collections around the globe. The company continues to innovate and push the boundaries of glassmaking, while staying true to the timeless beauty and elegance that has made it a beloved brand for over 700 years.
