What is the Vetro Artistico® Murano mark?
It is a proof of origin provided by the Veneto Region in compliance with the law 70, passed on December 23rd 1994. It certifies that products have been made on the island of Murano, according to glass making tradition. It is managed by Consorzio Promovetro.
Why is the trademark necessary?
To protect the image of Murano glass and also to guarantee the customer about the origin of the product and that it has been made using traditional artistic methods born and developed over a thousand years in the island of Murano.
What does the trademark guarantee?
The security that the product is genuine Murano Glass, made on Murano island, according to glass making tradition.
Who can display it?
Only the companies producing artistic glass on the island on Murano can apply for the trademark to the Veneto Region: if granted they become a “concessionary company” of the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark.
How Does it work?
Concessionary companies apply a special stick-on anti-counterfeit label to their products. It is produced with various security and traceability elements, to guarantee, without any doubt the origin of the product.
What does the stick-on label look like?
The label displays the trademark’s logo and can either be produced with red and gold colours or blue and gold colours according to the different kind of glass making techniques. On the top there is the Concessionary Company’s code. Since 2016 the sticker has presented a serial number and a datamatrix code that unequivocally identify the product and represent its “identification card”.
How can I verify the authenticity of the products through the sticker?
Through the reading of the datamatrix code with any dedicated app; with the free official app, Original Murano Glass, or alternatively through the Vetro Artistico® Murano web site, at the dedicated page www.muranoglass.com/original-murano-glass.
