Sample text

The tide could not be entirely stemmed, and slowly but surely at other glassmaking centres throughout Europe the stylistic Venetian elements – the façon de Venise – were introduced by migrant workers from Venice itself, and from Altare near Genoa which was the traditional rival of Venice and where the glassmakers’ corporation had a deliberate policy of disseminating workers and techniques. The Italian knowledge thus spread throughout Europe, reaching Vienna in 1428, Sweden in the 1550s and England by 1570 at the latest, so that Venice lost its supremacy in the glassmaking industry.

This vessel, probably the Gagiana, was on its way from Venice to the Levant, when it sank off the Yugoslavian coast in 1585. The cargo included 648 round window panes, 170 mm, 185 mm and 205 mm in diameter, and 86 types of glass objects. These included goblets, flasks, vases, pitchers, large square plates and two types of mirror, squared and round, which were obviously of Venetian origin. Some objects were of very thin transparent glass with greyish, greenish or purplish tints. Many were decorated with vertical filaments or threads of white opaque glass.

Venetian merchants travelled the trade routes of the world, and in the course of their dealings with the Middle East they would have encountered Syrian and Mesopotamian glassmakers so that the best of Middle Eastern glass would have found its way back to Venice. During this period the trade in glassware, which of course had been taking place for some three millennia, started to be documented. Trade routes were established, for example, between Genoa and Syria, the Mediterranean countries and Asia as far east as China, and between Murano and Dubrovnik.
