Venetian table lamp with amber scavo glass diffuser
A gorgeous traditional amber Murano ‘scavo’ glass table light on an amber metal base, entirely hand-produced on the famous glass-making island of Murano in the Venetian lagoon.
The mould for this beautiful light is first fashioned from steel wire. The glass-master then blows the molten glass into the frame where it expands into the lovely curved shape you see here, before it is allowed to cool.
A special chemical is used to erode parts of the surface of the glass, to give it a rustic appearance.
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.
