Mazzega Carlo Nason style chandelier, blue vaseline Murano glass on a gold-plated gilt frame, 1990`s ca, Italian.

This chandelier has been gently cleaned while respecting the vintage patina. It is newly rewired & earthed with gold silk cable, PAT tested by an electrician, fully working and ready to install. Light bulbs included. This chandelier can be used with a dimmer. It is possible to use this chandelier in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity.

Carlo Nason `Firenze` Suspension Design Chandelier is the 20th Century Design Classic which inspired this vintage piece.

Good craftsmanship and attention to detail, this chandelier shares many features of the originals: Murano glass flat ribbed droplets both hang and are staggered on a tiered metal frame. These ribbed glass blades were made in Murano with the original "piastra" technique.

This large size is perfect for contemporary decorating, either above a table, in a staircase, or as a focal point of any room. The tiered form with its cascading waterfall pattern is grand, but still `light`. This look is ideal for a range of interiors such as Traditional, Art Deco, French, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour or Contemporary.

Particularly attractive is the fluorescent, creamy iridescent appearance of the glass. Depending on the light source the reflection goes from soft creamy light blue with a golden hue. When a spot light is directed through, the colour shifts to fluorescent blue.

The texturised glass shades appear to hang lightly giving a sense of movement and beautifully reflecting the light.

Each glass shade is thick & strong. At the top there is a long hook portion to secure it to the frame.

Arranged down the 3 tiers there are 60 handmade Murano glass shades; 32 hang on the top tier, 20 on the second tier & 8 on the bottom tier. There are 3 lengths of glass shades: Large, Medium & Short. When in place, the pattern creates a staggered or draped `sea weed` like effect.

Each tier carry the following composition of shades:

Top large tier: 8 Long, 16 Medium, 8 Short
Middle tier: 5 Long, 10 Medium, 5 Short
Bottom tier: 4 Long, 2 Medium, 2 Short

The quality solid gilt frame has a polished finish. From a central column there are 3 concentric tiered circles, each of which is secured to the column by several horizontal supports.

The top row of six pivotal E 14 lamp holders rotate in various directions to create different effects and angles with the lights. The middle tier has three E 14 lamp holders facing down, and at the bottom there is one E 27 down lighter. In total the chandelier has 10 lights. All the lamp holders have decorative polished brass lamp holder covers.

The chandelier carries 9 standard E 14 small screw light bulbs up to 40 Watts each, and 1 standard E 27 big screw light bulb up to 60 Watts at the bottom.

At the top of the frame, there is a gilt brass ring screwed to the main structural rod inside the frame, and a gilt brass chain. The chain finishes at the top with a gilt brass ceiling cup, where inside there is a hook to hang the chandelier to the ceiling.This chain could be lengthened or shortened as needed.

This vintage chandelier is in very good condition. All the glass shades are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The metal frame is sound with a light patina in line with age.

Packing is offered free of charge. This chandelier travels well as all the components can be easily wrapped separately. Each glass shade would be wrapped in card & bubble wrap. Small groups of glass shades would be boxed. These boxes would be placed in a larger box with the frame. The frame would be wrapped in bubble wrap and reinforced with card. These items would be supported inside with filler.
