Description
The earliest evidence of glass-making on the Venetian island of Murano dates from the 7th or 8th century; for hundreds of years it was known as the source for the finest glass in the world, where dynastic guilds carefully guarded their secrets for making lenses and mirrors. This beautifully illustrated, pocketable book traces the history of Murano glass, including the formation and consolidation of the industry there, its golden age in the 16th century, its decline in the 19th century after Napoleon's reforms, and its rebirth in the modern era.
