Stunning Pair of Handblown Mid-Century Modernist Murano Mercury Glass Uplights

Stunning Pair of Handblown Mid-Century Modernist Murano Mercury Glass Uplights

14,475.00

This outstanding pair of silver uplights were handblown by artisans on the Venetian island of Murano, Italy, who have been using the same traditional techniques for centuries to produce some of the world's most illustrious glass products. These lights have been crafted from handblown mercury glass, with eight cobalt midnight rings "cinching" various segments of the mirrored glass base. The surface of the mercury glass has a highly reflective sheen with myriad recursive ripples that offer the impression of a gently disturbed ocean under silvered skies. These fixtures read both classically Mid Century Modernist and contemporary, blending beautifully with a wide range of interior styles. They have been newly rewired to American standards and are in excellent condition.
