Pair of Blown Glass and Brass Sconces by Napoleone Martinuzzi for Gine Cenedese


A fantastic and rare pair of blown-glass and brass sconces by Napoleone Martinuzzi for Gino Cedenese. Blown in the "scavo" style (a Murano, frosted glass technique developed to recreate the look of unearthed, archeological glass), conveying a joyous swimming scene with highly stylized, monochromatic characters and setting. Mounted in original brass fixtures. Expertly executed, exceptionally decorative, handmade lighting elements by this celebrated, multi-disciplinary Italian artist.
