Abstract

Antonio Salviati was a lawyer with no glassmaking experience when, in 1859, he and the Muranese technician Lorenzo Radi founded a Venetian workshop for the production of mosaics. The mayor of Murano, Antonio Colleoni, Abbot Vincenzo Zanetti, indefatigable promoters of the revival of Muranese glassmaking in the second half of the 19th century, regarded Salviati as talented, entrepreneurial, and well suited to establish a factory in which outstanding 15th- and 16th-century glass objects could be reproduced. In February 1866, Salviati traveled to London to study the market. During his stay, he sent several letters to his wife and to Colleoni. These letters provide detailed insights into how the objects to be reproduced were selected, and they include information about difficulties that were encountered in the early production.
