A set of 46 fragments decorated with the filigree technique were unearthed in Lisbon and dated to the 16th and 17th centuries. The aim of this investigation is to combine the archaeometric study of the glass together with the technology used to produce these beautiful and luxury items, in order to discuss their probable provenance. The glass composition was characterized using laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA- ICP-MS). It was possible to identify genuine Venetian glass but it was also possible to find glass compositions that do not relate with any of the compositions from known façon-de-Venice glass production centers.
