abstract

The most important age of Venetian glass began just before the middle of the 15th century, when Angelo Barovier invented crystal glass in his Murano glassworks. Some vessels of the late 15th and early 16th century were enamel decorated with patterns derived from Roman marble reliefs and fresco paintings. Starting from the mid-15th century, glassblowers developed new decorative techniques. Some of them were probably inspired by archaelogical glass findings, which were included in Venetian collections. Such techniques were ‘meza stampaura’ ribbing, glass filigree, application of stamped glass medallions and, perhaps, ‘rosetta’ rods.
