The Design / Brand
Barovier is one of the oldest Italian glassmakers and family businesses, founded in 1291 on the island of Murano.
In the late nineteenth century the Barovier group formed a new company, ‘Artisti Barovier’ that won awards for its new techniques such as mother-of-pearl glass and corniola red without gold.
After the First World War, the Barovier factory was refurbished and the company name change to ‘Vetreria Artistica Barovier&C’. This rebranding coincided with Ercole Barovier joining the company as a designer and as part of the management in 1920. Ercole was the son of Benvenuto Barovier, a highly respected glass furnace owner, and started work at his father’s factory straight after leaving school. He flourished and took over the company in a very short period of time. Ercole created new manufacturing techniques and colours but he also designed new effects and this was where he really excelled. In 1939, Barovier merged with the Toso family, another old business in Murano to form ‘Barovier & Toso’ and the period following saw some great inventions from Ercole.
