"Think Twice About Buying Murano Treasures" Murano Glassware Tip by GracesTrips
Murano Glassware, Venice: 44 reviews and 62 photos
Murano glass treasures are amazing! Also, over priced! Buyer beware! For example, I found a little, contorted glass bowl with an opalescent hue that I really wanted. One store had it for ?45. I thought it was too expensive and proceeded to go back to another store that had a similar bowl I liked and found they wanted ?78. Well, this was no bigger than a small candy dish or dip bowl so for that much money I passed on buying it. To my good fortune, a couple months later, I found the same bowl (from Murano) in a Crate & Barrel store here in the states. I bought it for US$18 or ?11 and bought a gigantic bowl for US$36 or ?23! I was estatic with my find!
But, I did purchase a beautiful beaded necklace with round Murano beads and polished stones for $78 which I know I would not be able to find back at home. So, use your judgment wisely in making purchases of Murano glass.
