The company Fratelli Barovier was founded in 1878 by Giovanni Barovier and the sons of his brother Antonio ( Giuseppi, Benvenuto and Benedetto ). They had all been working in Murano as glassblowers for Dr Antonio Salviati since 1866. In 1883 they took over the Salviati glassworks working with Antonio Camozzo, director of the Salvati glassworks. From 1927, the company was called Vetreria Artistica Barovier & Co and Ercole Barovier was the main designer. This company was liquidated in 1936 and renamed Ferro Toso Barovier Vetrerie Artische Riunite SA . From 1942 onwards, the company was called Barovier & Toso with Artemio and Decio Toso as directors and Ercole Barovier as director.
