Present since 1300 in the census books of Murano, Italy, today the prestigious Seguso glass-crafting family has a Brazilian branch. In 1954, Mario Seguso was invited to execute special commemorative pieces for the 400th anniversary of the city of Sao Paulo. Enchanted by Brazil, he decided to settle there and, after years of supervising the production of artisan crystal, he assured its continuity through his sons Michel and Adriano.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
