This is an overview of primarily Murano Italian glass, with some interesting information about the different designers and companies who produce this Venetian glass. Photographically however, for a large book there is nothing particularly outstanding or varied about the items pictured, which are heavily in the vases and bowls category, and very little about figurals which I collect. Leslie Pina is an excellent author who has done many books on glass that I own, particularly the American art glass companies such as Viking, Blenko etc. with more about figurals. A better book that she has done is the more recent Archimede Seguso: Lace & Stone which although just about Seguso Murano, has a wider variety of photos and categories. These books are quite expensive, best wait for a lower priced used one, as none have truly catalogued the work of Murano Glass.

I knew nothing about Italian glass. My husband and I received a stunning red Murano vase and we had no idea what we had acquired. We ordered Italian Glass by Leslie Pina in the hopes it would help us understand our vase.

It definitely lived up to our expectations. Leslie Pina has done an exceptional job researching, documenting and explaining the history, value and importance of the Italian glass industry. Her commitment to detail is impressive. You can literally feel her passion for Italian glass throughout this book.

We now know more than we ever thought we'd learn about Murano glass and all in one weekend. Yes, you can spend hours on the Internet researching and going website to website. But really, why would you want to do that when you have a reference guide like this one available?

This book is worth the price alone just for the spectacular pictures! I came away with a new appreciation for the craftsmanship and work that goes into each hand blown piece of Italian glass art.

A great book for the novice or beginner, collector or ??? This book offers plenty of colorful pictures but, in my opinion is lacking some of the in-depth knowledge that Judith Miller's similar books provide. Overall, this is a fine book and should be part of anyone's reference library pertaining to Italian or Venetian Art Glass. I only wish it were a bit more thorough. Only my opinion but, I still like owning this book....

Thank so much.

Great find!

Great book...just what I was after. Goes into the various types of Italian glassware. Would like to find a book strictly on Millefiori, but this it a great substitute.

One thing that has always amazed me is how scholarship on the so-called applied arts lags so far behind that devoted to the fine arts. There can be no doubt that this is a useful reference book with decent illustrations and general boilerplate information on the various makers, but it is by no means definitive and I would check out the competition. I personally don't care for the arrangement of illustrations by type of glass (bowl, vase, figurine, etc.) and would greatly prefer to have the chapters arranged by maker with the individual pieces of all types in chronological order. The text has the feel of something hastily put together, and I especially miss the presence of a chapter on connoisseurship because unless a Murano piece is signed or has a sticker (which can be added well after the fact)we are stuck with some very questionable attributions. It makes me very uneasy that the price values were mostly supplied by Rago's, a commercial auction house in Lambertville, New Jersey), and one wonders as to the degree of self interest with which these values were determined. Murano is such an interesting and complex field that it deserves the degree of scholarly finesse we get from Helmut Ricke in his very fine book Czech Glass 1945-1980, which I regard as a standard by which other books on glass ought to be judged.
I strongly recommend Leslie Pina's book to collectors of Murano glass in the US. While other books have pictures of the more elite museum pieces, Leslie Pina's book has hundreds of pictures of glassware that we see most often. It is a valuable reference in learning to identify and appraise the work of the quality artisans -- Fratelli Toso, Dino Martens, Salviati, Venini, Seguso, Campanella, Cenedese, and others. It is the most useful book on Murano glass that I own.
