About the Item

A stunning early 1970s smokey light and dark blue glass disk chandelier made in Murano, Italy. It is designed by well known Italian designer Gino Vistosi for his lighting company Vistosi. The chandelier features hand formed oval disks in a smokey light and dark blue color glass. The larger disks measure approximately 4" by 6" in size. They hang singly or in chains of two from small iron hooks that fit into the large round iron frame. Additionally, the bottom has a matching blue glass dish that is frosted on the interior to diffuse the light. There are are three standard internal sockets. The chandelier measures 23 inches in diameter and 16 inches tall. Very good condition with light wear. This design is called Torcello (one of the first islands to be inhabited by people and the mythic birthplace of Venice). It was produced from 1960s into the 1970s in sconces and various versions of chandeliers. A large chandelier version was published in Domas Magazine, no. 440 in July 1966 on page 105 and in the book I vetri di Murano, Milano, Bastetti, 1967. pp205 and 228 by Giovanni Mariacher.
