About Me – FAQ

Welcome!
If you’re here, it must be because you want at least to understand who are you talking with, or dealing with, or sort of it.
I’m a glass shop located in the very heart of Venice, St. Mark’s Square, more precisely in Bacino Orseolo.
It’s not that I am a shop, I simply the person you would talk with if you were in Venice in person and you happen to come into the shop.
I have worked in this store since 12 years now, but I am a former bookseller (Nostalgic music soundtrack in background…)
For this reason, I try to read and get informed about every single piece I display in my store and of course in my website.

If You have already been in our store, You’ll find inside here the quality and professionalism I offered to You and any other customer.

You’re surely wondering at a lot of things during your visit, so let me help through a few questions.

Q: Is the glass original and authentic Murano Glass?
A: The short answer is “Yes, it is.”
A longer answer can be “Every single item that I have is original, guaranteed, and authentic Murano Glass.”

Q: How do I know and I make sure that it is actually Murano Glass?
A: Although the exact answer can be a simple “You can’t”, truth is there is a lot of ways to guarantee and ensure the authenticity of Murano Glass items.
Most of the items come with a sticker with the name of the glass factory, the signature of the glassmaster, and a certificate of authenticity with details.
Some of the items can’t be signed because of their size or shape, and for the same reason on some of the items it is not possible to attach a sticker, therefore the certificate of authenticity remains the only way to guarantee the item.
I provide for any items all the guarantees.

Q: How do I purchase an Item I like?
A: In every items’ page there is a contact form, you just have to write me and I will give you all the informations you need to proceed with the payment.

Q: How long will it take to get the item after the purchase?
A: It will all depends from where I have to ship it and how, but again I will provide every information you need regarding it.

Q: Is the price Pre-Vat?
A: Every price include VAT.  Vat exemption please ask before purchasing.

Q: Why did you change from selling books to selling glass?
A: You really don’t want me to answer that… 😀

These are just a few of the questions you’re probably asking, for any other one simply contact me through the contact form, email or Skype
