20th Century Venetian Murano Rostrato Glass Six-light Chandelier Barovier Style
A very elegant Italian six-light chandelier, a Venetian timeless clear glass pendant realized using the Rostrato technique presented by Ercole Barovier at The Biennale di Venezia in 1938. This innovative technique aimed to create a luminous effect thanks to the many small cusps on the glass, the hundreds of tips that multiply the magic of light. The lines of this Italian chandelier are very contemporary, accentuated by rostrato glass details making this Murano glass chandelier a unique piece of craftsmanship.
Six large glass dropping cups make this antique chandelier very versatile and suitable above any dining table. Dropping bells have a double finish, diamond point and scalloped transparent glass with inclusions of air bubbles in the lower part.
The lower glass bowl contains an internal wooden support disc, where arms and leaves are inserted, that has been replaced with a new one.
Good condition, rewired for Italian standards suitable for six Edison 27 bulbs. Max power 750 watt.
This antique chandelier comes from a Milanese private collection.
This Venetian chandelier handmade in Murano Italy, dates back to 1955 circa and has a new European standard working wiring.
