  • Description
    Wonderful timeless Picture Frame designed around '50s by the manufacturer Barovier & Toso. The item has the very peculiar frame worked in Murano Glass in the style of "Torchon". The photo frame has a brass structure and support.
    In very good condition, patina of time, original in all its parts.

    Ercole Barovier was born in Murano on June 16, 1889. He completed his classical studies in Venice, and engaged in various activities unrelated to glassmaking to finally land in the Vetreria artistica Barovier & C., becoming its manager and artistic director in 1926.
    Barovier partnered in 1936 with the owners of the Ferro Toso glassworks, founding Ferro Toso Barovier, later Barovier & Toso.
    In this firm of almost artisanal dimensions, typical of the highest-rated Murano firms, Barovier operated until his death as administrator and artistic director and had the opportunity to explicate his whimsical creative talents to the fullest.

    We recommend a wooden crate for shipping to prevent glass damage.
