Pair of Italian Cobalt Blue "Sommerso" Murano Glass Lamps

About

Pair of stunning Murano cobalt blue handblown glass lamps. These lamps have been made in the “Sommerso” technique. The height to the top of the glass is 14.75”. Sommerso (lit. "submerged" in Italian), or "sunken glasses", is a form of artistic Murano glass that has layers of contrasting colors (typically two), which are formed by dipping a gather of colored glass into another molten glass and then blowing the gather into the desired shape; the outermost layer, or casing, is often clear. Sommerso was developed in Murano during the late thirties and was made popular by Seguso d'Arte & Mandruzzato family in the fifties. This process is a popular technique for vases, and is sometimes used for sculptures. The lamps have been wired for U.S. use. The glass base (without socket) measures 14.75". This pair of Italian lamps is on display at the 1stdibs Gallery at the New York Design Center (200 Lexington Avenue, NY).
