Murano lighting for show
« on: September 10, 2019, 08:38:20 AM »
As promised a couple of matching bits of lighting, a desk lamp and a couple of wall lights. To my eye in the style of Vittorrio Ferro, the fittings are pretty modern so I guess made within the last twenty years or so maybe at Fratelli Pagnin.

Oodles of aventurine and dramatic murrine with a black incalmo band, really bold glass making!

I have an unrelated ball lamp that I wanted to show but the photos taken with my phone are too poor, will try again...

I like the one on the stand the best. I bet they change completely when lit.  ;D
That is quite a gathering of matching pieces you've found!
