Barovier & Toso is an Italian company specializing in Murano glassware (Venice). It has always been owned and run by the Barovier family.

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 draws her models. It markets its products itself 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.
