This rare table lamp was designed and made by the collectable Murano glass artist Alfredo Barbini. His skill and knowledge of glassmaking ran in the blood. He was born in Murano, an island in Venice renowned for glass blowing, to parents from respected glassblowing families. He began working in glass at the age of 13 and spent a long career as a master glassblower for workshops such as Vistosi, Seguso Vetri d’Arte and Gino Cenedese.
The lamp is formed of two elements, a semi-opaque glass shade and an organic-textured base – made from moulded glass formed by heating and mixing at extremely high temperatures. There is a clear glass bowl under the top shade that helps conceal nickel fixings and three-way bulbs. The top shade has been designed to angle the light and create space for bulb changing with ease.
The light is in extremely good condition with no signs of damage and little signs of age. We have had it re-wired and PAT tested.
