Skilled Venetian artisans have been making beautiful traditional Murano glass chandeliers for hundreds of years. During the 50s and 60s,a new era of chandelier design began. The Venetian studios began to create a new style of chandelier which reflected the spirit of the space-age. In the last couple of years, those same studios have revisited their mid-century ideas and are now creating modern mid-century collections, inspired by those 20th century designs.

We are very pleased to have developed strong links with some of these glass-making companies as we are able to offer you their new lines, often exclusively. This beautiful chandelier has 12 lights, mounted on an antiqued brass frame.

The technique used to finish the partially-silvered glass is called “martellato”. This translates into English as “hammered” but the surface of the glass, when cool, is actually ground with small strokes. This is a very labour-intensive and skilled process, fraught with risk of breakage,but the successful result is breathtaking.
