Deco lamp very unusual glass shade
« Reply #30 on: August 26, 2006, 05:08:50 PM »
I think the shade is 1970s Murano glass, probably by Tony Zuccheri. He did a series of molded objects with the same distinctive indentations.  

I have seen tons of these shades around, usually with 1970s-ish chrome hardware.  Most Murano shades were sold without hardward, and purchased by lamp companies that assembled them.  I vote that the base is a marriage, or assembled by a style-challenged lamp distributor.  

The hanging shade could be P&P. Barovier also did something similar called 'efeso.'

This one is the Schleiergraphit hall lamp from P&P - Max you just might remember seeing it? And confirming that yours is one as well.

Thanks for the pic Ivo, I think I do remember it...at the bottom of the stairs?  Mine has much more carbon though, not sure whether I prefer that or the lighter more silvery effect.  

Sue has suggested looking for a P&P mark (thanks Sue).  Would you know if all P&P is marked?  I've had a look over the lamp, but can't find anything so far - but it's a BIG lamp and hard to see marks to be honest.

I wonder if I should have bought the other matching lamp?  It was another £30, so I baulked a bit...  :x

The lamp is not marked, but the vases are marked with the etched P mark just above the stand, or on the bottom. Not sure if this was consistent or not. I can imagine that 30 ukp for another one would be stretching it. Nice to have an example, but it has to remain a hobby.

But I aspire to a glass collection the size of yours!  And I'm getting there too.   :oops:  :lol:

On the lamp front, it depends whether I can find somewhere for both lamps to go in the house.  If I don't find somewhere for both of them, then I'll keep this one as an example...as you said.  Thanks Ivo. x

:D :shock: :D

I think you must be labouring under the idea that 30ukp is a lot of money, Ivo - probably the exchange rate!

Where in the shops can you buy a decent lampshade, new, for 30 ukp?

:shock:

I said a DECENT lampshade, David!

This means that the offending light bulb must be discretely hidden, but good ambient light distributed around the room, or where it is required. The design should blend nicely, or compliment the decor.

Michael took me to Ikea once. He will never darken their doors again. Not even to save money.

Pfooo what nonsense. Ikea make the best designed light & fittings in the business, just after Artemide.  :idea:  :idea:  :idea:

Only because most of their designs are heavily plagiarised from 1930s-70s Italian and Danish designs...  :evil:
