“Mandruzzato was founded in 1956 on the island of Murano, Venice, Italy, by Luigi Mandruzzato. In 1965 Luigi was joined by his son, Gianfranco Mandruzzato, who took over the running of the company two years later. At first the company made glass lighting fixtures, and then began producing ornaments, vases, ashtrays, etc. The firm is now run by Gianfranco’s son Alessandro Mandruzzato.” — 20th Century Glass Encyclopedia
