RARE Barovier & Toso Black Glass and 24 ct Gold Murano Lamps c 1960’s

These lamps are beyond gorgeous. They have gold flakes throughout the body which captures and relfects light beautifully. The details are absolutely fabulous-these lamps are truly art works. There was a fierce bidding for these at the auction when I got them-very impressive pieces.

Barovier & Toso is an Italian company that specializes in Venetian glass. The company is one of the oldest family businesses in the world, founded in 1295 as simply Barovier. It was not until 1936, that the Barovier family merged with the Toso family’s Fratelli Toso Glassworks, to form Barovier & Toso, specializing in crystalline glass, mother-of-pearl glass, and gold-free cornelian red glass.

This chic pair are showstoppers and would add the perfect pop of black to your interiors and are wondeful investments that you will have for years to come. They have vintage brass harps and finials and new wiring with gold silk cord. Think they would be even more impactful with patent leather black shades or if you prefer something more toned down, a lovely neutral fabric shade would be glamorous as well.

Newly rewired with silk cord.
