About

This rare and stunning pair of Mid-Century Modern chandeliers were realized by Carlo Scarpa for Venini circa 1960. Created by one of the most legendary designers of the 20th centuries for one of Italy's most stories lighting ateliers, this pair of chandeliers represents the sublime marriage of impeccable craftsmanship and great design. Each chandelier features three rows of conical glass with a repeating diamond motif etched into the surface, realized in handblown smoked champagne glass. The shades are pierced through the center with a rod and secured on each end with circular brass rivets. Iconic, important and gorgeous, these chandeliers are like jewels that promise to add (more than) a touch of elegance to any interior space that they grace.

They have been newly rewired to American standards. The height can be adjusted to suit. Each chandelier accommodates twelve candelabra based bulbs providing up to 720 watts of light each. A single chandelier can be purchased for $25k. Italy, circa 1960 Dimensions: 46" height x 20" diameter.
