Exceptional Murano glass lamp in the manner of Ercole Barovier. Founded in 1295, Barovier is a respected name in Italian Murano glass design. In the 1920-1939’s, designer Ercole Barovier began a 50-year career as the artistic director of Barovier & Toso. This lamp is attributed to his design. This timeless design that first appeared in the 1930s called “Rostrato” by Ercole Barovier and continues to meet today’s home decor needs. These lamps were made in the 1960s, in clear “cristallo” glass that has an outer layer of rows characterized by spikes called “rostri” that protrude from the surface. This Rostrato pattern is done as the glass is cooling off. The natural non-uniform glass spikes made by the skilled glassmith create the allure and beauty of the design.
Due to being handmade, there are irregularities. These signs of natural imperfections make the artistry alluring. Placed on any surface, this accent lamp will glisten like a gem when lit. Use it as a night light in a bedroom, or to call attention to an end table in a living room.
