We visited this place during our Venice trip and we had a great day at Murano. We visited numerous glass factories and show rooms and while all were impressive we ended up making a purchase here. We had decided ahead of time that we were going to purchase something from Murano for our home back in the US. So we went to the island with the intent of checking out all of the glass factories and buying something to ship home. After much walking and looking and talking we found a vase we really liked at this place. We were shown the upstairs room (where they keep the good stuff !!) at every factory but always felt like we were being pressured to buy something. At this place Ivano showed us around then left us alone and when we expressed an interest in something he would describe to us exactly how the peice was made. A touch we really liked. When we decided which pieces (it was down to 2 vases) we liked Ivano left us alone to discuss and look at the 2 in detail. Once we decided which one we were willing to buy Ivano worked up a price which we felt was quite reasonable compared to all of the pieces we had looked at during the day (and the ones we had researched on the internet).
The final step is the shipping and our package was shipped as promised, on time and packaged very well. It was also the exact piece we picked out at the factory.
The vase is now prominently displayed in our home and a constant reminder of the wonderful trip we had to Italy.
