This unique piece of Canadiana was made by Chalet Artistic Glass in Cornwall, Ontario, in business from 1962 to 1975. The company actually began in Montreal as Les Industries de Verre et Miroirs in 1958, changing its name to Murano Glass in 1960.
Murano Glass was Canada’s first handmade decorative glassware company. It was founded by three master glass artisans from Venice: glasscutter Angelo Tedesco, and glassblowers Luigi Tedesco (his brother) and Sergio Pagnin (his brother-in-law). As the business expanded, additional glassblowers were hired from Venice, as well as many assistants from Cornwall and the nearby St. Regis Mohawk Reserve at Akwesasne.
The vivid jewel tones of Chalet Glass caught everyone’s attention in the 1960s, and continue to captivate today, the brilliant transparent colours are delightfully appealing.

We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
