Italian Modernist Handblown Translucent Murano Glass & Polished Brass Chandelier

8,475.00

This elegant chandelier was realized in Murano, Italy- the islands off the coast of Venice renowned for centuries for their superlative glass production. It features an elongated ovoid body, six channeled streamlined arms with striations in relief- all realized in lustrous polished glass. Additionally, it offers translucent uplight shades with undulating sides, clear murines, and rippled tops. The chandelier connects to a two tier domed canopy via a brass rod circumscribed by a textured glass sheath. This piece represents modernist design at its finest- combining traditional sensibilities with inspiration culled from Art Deco and Mid Century Modern influences to produce an aesthetic that is as timeless as it is stunning. It has been newly rewired to American standards and is in excellent condition. The height can be adjusted to suit. It accommodates six Edison based bulbs providing up to 600 watts of light, which is more than ample luminosity for practically any setting.
