Barovier & Toso is an Italian company specializing in Murano glassware (Venice). It has always been owned and run by the Barovier family. Founded in 1295 and still in activity, its longevity allows it to be part of the Association of Hénokiens. Its history is linked to that of the Republic of Venice.
Barovier & Toso is, until 2015, the fifth oldest family business in the world and still in operation. She designs and manufactures luxury glass items, in particular Venetian crystal. She designs her models and markets her products herself throughout the world.
Ercole Barovier (1889-1972), designer and chemist, designed more than 25,000 objects, the sketches of which are kept in the company's archives.
In 1936, the Barovier family joined forces with that of the Toso, also Venetian glassmakers.
In 2015, Jacopo Barovier resolved to sell 80% of the company's shares to Rinaldo Invernizzi, while none of his sons, nor those of Toso, wanted to take over the business. However, he remains CEO of the company, but it no longer belongs to him. Barovier therefore leaves the Henokiens club ....
