Round Nine Tiers Chandelier, 380 Murano Fume' Glass, 1990s, Metal Ring

$17,344.35

About

Grand midcentury chandelier that carries around 340 glass elements in fume glass. Each element has small grooves that are playing with light. Light fume color appears tea color when unlit and gets warmer when lit. It's one of the most difficult color that Murano glass makers were able to do, it's called fume, not because it resemble smoke but the technique is to reduce the air in the crucible, bringing reduction, to the smoking point. It's a sort of Raku reaction. For this reason the color comes in many shades of mezzetinta amber/mustard/gray colors and it's hard to keep the color the same for the whole production of the pieces. The light fume used is to avoid shading the light too much. This taupe gray bring warmth but not being too bright will work well with both a modern and a classic home. The glass elements are poured and pressed with the fracco technique. The same technique was used by Barovier and Toso for their deco chandeliers. There are nine tiers. Inside nine sockets for a great light output. What's unusual is the compactness of the glass and it's thickness. Barely showing the hardware. For a loft studio or hall. This chandelier gives a great ambiance light. Bronze hardware a bronze band nicely covers the first row of glass hooks. Identifications, references: Unknown origin. Hardware reflects the typical triedri straight mounting. I could not find a reference to the glass elements. I will so list as in the style of Venini merely for research help. Hardware leads for a 90s production as this color was not so popular on hardware before that time. Evaluation assessment: Because of the uncertainty of attribution the value is assigned considering complexity of manufacturing and quality of both hardware and glass. In particular the thickness and the way glass is tightly packed together. The piece is evaluated by the beauty and not by the attribution which I believe is a bit generic. Chandelier will be complimentary wired over to buyer's code. UL certification by UL registered lab upon request. Measure listed is for the central body, carries 40 cms 16" of chain. Extra links to be included upon request. With short chain cam become flush mount.
