Amber Murano glass flush fitting ceiling light
A beautiful traditional amber Venetian ‘baloton’ glass flush-fitting ceiling lantern, entirely hand-made on the famous glass-making island of Murano.
The mould for this beautiful ceiling fitting is first fashioned from bronze wire. The glass-master then blows the molten glass into the frame where it expands into the lovely curved shape you see here. The hot glass is then stamped with a special ‘baloton’ mould to create a raised criss-cross pattern on the glass. This is a very typical centuries-old Venetian glass-making design, which is still very popular today.
We are also able to have this gorgeous ceiling light made for you in aquamarine baloton glass, or transparent baloton crystal. If you scroll down to the bottom of this page, you will see parts of other baloton lights by the same manufacturer, showing both colourways.
A smaller size measuring Diameter 31cm x Height 14cm is also available.

This piece may bear some tiny imperfection that will attest to its having been fashioned entirely by hand, thus increasing its value and uniqueness. It is based on a historical design and has been crafted using purely traditional techniques.
