Since its roots began in the year 1295, Barovier and Toso, a glassmaking firm of the island of Murano near Venice, Italy, has long prided itself on painstaking blown glass work that embodies the slow-moving, poetic spirit of the island.
This mid-century modern bell jar chandelier by the company, created in the 1950’s, possesses that vision in its beautiful crystal-clear ripples and playful, organic shape. Small, dark brass accents similarly feel earthy, each accent distinct, as though it was plucked straight from a metallic deposit in the earth. To place this chandelier in your home—in a corridor, above a dining table, or right in your primary entryway—would be to bring the enlightened, centuries old appreciation for blown glass craftsmanship into your contemporary day-to-day world.
