Large Handblown Murano Glass Table Lamp

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is an exceptional piece of Italian blown glass from Murano. The color is a rich smokey blue/grey. And the scale is impressive. The main body of the lamp is one solid piece of blown glass. The base is black painted wood, and so is the cap at the top of the glass.

The hardware involved is an old style brass fitter that takes a milk glass diffuser, which the shade sits on. The shade shown is vintage, but not original.

The lamp alone, without the shade, measures 41" to the top of the milk glass diffuser. 49" with the shade.
