Large Italian Murano Pendant by Alfredo Barbini, 1960s; designed by Alfredo Barbini and made in Italy at Vetreria Alfredo Barbini. This lamp is made of mouth-blown Murano glass and hangs on a frame of chromed metal. The mouth-blown Murano glass is made with a special technique which successively adds the glass rings on top of each other. As a result, the lamp has fine grooves on the inside of the glass cap. The application of this technique is difficult, since the glass rings must always be the same size to precisely fit together. The glass goes from clear to white milk glass leading to a beautiful warm light (see pictures). The chair on the picture shows the size of the lamp. The price for the lamp. Marked on the glass shade: Barbini (see photos).
The dimensions of the glass cap are: h x d = 49 x 40 cm. The total length (of the suspension bracket and glass shade) is 93 + 49 = 142 cm.
Given the age, this vintage lamp in very good condition. The the wiring has been checked by an electrician.
