Exceptional, large Salon Lamp by Venini
A very rare, large table lamp, elegantly emerging from a twisted glass base with a golden bronze ring, elaborately turning and evolving into a mint-coloured lampshade reflecting the light beautifully.
Based on the Venetian tradition of the 13th Century, Venini pursues to maintain the art of glass making, recruiting glass masters, artists, and designers over the last 100 years and exporting the objects into the whole world. Since 1921 Venini’s “fornace” has been transforming precious quartz sand into glass lava to create wonderful objects. In 1923 Venini received the Great Gold Medal “The International Exhibition of Decorative Arts” from Monza, later the Triennale in Milan.
