Murano Chandelier
Height: 26" / 66.04cm
Diameter: 21" / 53.34cm
Beautiful one of a kind Murano Chandelier with five Battuto smoked glass cylinders cascading down from a flush mount ceiling disk. These cylinders are handmade varying in thickness ranging from 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thick, with a diameter of 19". Battuto meaning struck or beaten, is a cold working finishing treatment using a grinding wheel to mark the surface of the glass. The grindings are made to differing depths and with overlapping irregularity to create a faceted fish scale or hammered metal effect. The process originates from the early 1900s, most notably from the Daum glass works in Nancy, France. In Murano the process was a favourite of Carlo Scarpa at Venini & C, as well as Alfredo Barbini, Lino Tagliapietra, and Davide Salvadore.
