Two Midcentury Murano Triedri Sconces, Acciaio Grey Filigree, 1980s

$3,795.23per set

About

Elegant large pair of sconce to frame a wide mirror or a large entrance. Requires professional and skilled makers as the benting of the triedri was made keeping the crest out with a great play with light. Eight elements each. Tall. Very stylish and deco. Uses four candelabra sockets. To be required for your country specifications. The gray filigree and curving withness Murano making. The clear part is optically neutral. Filigree triedri cannot be made with extruded glass. There is a common attribution of the triedri construction to Venini and curvati are a Carlo Nason design. However Carlo Nason did not design these. The situation is more complex. All considering I am assigning the pieces designed by and attributed to for keyword search. It's a beautiful pair of sconces. Unknown origin. I am assessing an 1990s production. Triedri and Quadriedri were developed as biconvex clear lenses to keep the light output without shading, spreading the light to reduce the hot spot effect. Identifications, references: Quality of glass triedri, gray filigree and optical feature identifies the piece as made in Murano. Evaluation assessment: By complexity of manufacturing and quality of both hardware and glass, By the uniqueness of the pieces and the Fine aesthetics. Special note: This chandelier was designed for glass with high refraction index, the straight triedri itself was created to have a convex spreading lens. Refraction is what makes the glass appear brilliant (higher in diamonds, crystal and potash glass). Glass used in Murano for this chandelier was a special potash glass, it's harder and thus more difficult to work, has more shoulder and allows elongation. The optic quality is important for the beauty of the fixture lit, and unlit. Starting from the 90s cheap lucite knock-outs were made industrially in Germany, USA and China. These can be found at a fraction of the cost. The lower refraction of lucite shows more the outline of the hardware, the hot spot of the bulbs and has plastic feel. Glass curvati are the real thing.
