Rare and beautiful 1930s pendant lamp designed by T. Buzzi for Venini. The brass structure supports the decorative elements in transparent Murano glass and gold leaf, which alternate in two different sizes along the circular perimeter. A decorative flower element closes the lower part. The rod, also covered in glass, ends at the ceiling with an elegant and shaped cup.
The conditions are pretty good: a vertical decorative element has been glued with a two-component glue. One more replaced with its original and authentic spare part and reassembled on specially made brass elements. Some chips on the “flower” shaped piece (see photo).
Due to the substitution of the above elements, the alternate profile of the decorative elements is not perfectly uniform, as a piece remains slightly lower.
