Transparent Murano crystal flush fitting ceiling light
A beautiful traditional clear Venetian ‘baloton’ crystal flush-fitting ceiling lantern, entirely hand-made on the famous glass-making island of Murano.
The mould for this beautiful ceiling lamp 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 or amber baloton glass. 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. Please contact us if you would like further information.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.
