In 1929 he joined Cristalleria di Venezia e Murano as a master glassblower. From 1936 to 1944 he was a partner and master glassblower at Societa Anonima Vetri Artistici Murano. Following World War II Barbini worked as master glassblower and designer successively with Archimede Seguso and Napoleone Martinuzzi, then became a partner with Vetreria Vistosi and, later, Gino Cenedese.With financial assistance from the firm of Salviati & C. For whom he produced products, he formed in 1950 his own glass firm, Vetreria Alfredo Barbini. He died in 2007 at the age of 95. I recently bought out the estate of a murano art glass collector. I got some amazing pieces from the 1930's forward.
I will be listing approximately 50 pieces over the next couple of days so be sure and check back with me. I accept reasonable offers and please include photos as part of the description.
