We use only (new and quality recycled) high-tech, lightweight packing materials. 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 artistry, 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 never looses value. Before 1980, most Murano glass was only usually identified with impermanent paper/foil labels. So the name was easily co-opted by a variety of outside fraudulent glass makers. Post-1980, genuine Murano glass is much more carefully labeled and/or signed. Glass makers with famous Italian names, working in other countries still don't make the authentic'Murano' glass that carries that genuine value.
The most egregious Murano glass fraud is carried out by Chinese manufacturers, cranking out crude, cheap fakes and fraudulently labeling to pass them off as genuine. 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 a few of the more common knock-off brands. They also commonly use mis-leading 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").
They imply that they are made in Murano using their unique skills, which they ARE NOT. These manufacturers, importers, and sellers are trying to CHEAT YOU! Don't let it happen. It takes examining and studying hundreds of examples to know for sure, but here is a quick clue: Fakes are cheap, 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, if any, unless intentional.Fakes seldom have random bubbles or metallic inclusions flakes/dust, a. When they do, it is never real gold. Important is that most fakes are priced very low. At OnMyWatch, we are experienced collectors who only offer genuine, vintage Murano art glass!

NORMAL WEAR : Vintage or antique items will undoubtedly show minor signs of normal wear and/or patina.Minor usage marks will not be remarkable. NO PAINT : Our Murano or studio glass is NOT painted!

This results in the design becoming actually imbedded in the surface of the glass. PHOTOGRAPHY POLICY : Photos are considered part of the listing description.
