Directly from Alfredo Rossi. These are his only two chandeliers that would fit the mid-century style. They are made with over 30 discs made with the rullati technique. The same technique is used to make Renaissance windows. White glass sommerso with clear glass, and then hand opened and flattened. Pontil mark still visible to assess the hand-made quality versus cheaper pressed glass versions of this chandelier. Each has more than 30 of these discs. Chrome hardware.
For more information about these two special chandeliers, see my post on Alfredo Rossi.
Identifications, references: Identification not needed… straight from the maker’s hands.
Evaluation assessment: There are several around, here is an example. Just Google Vistosi disc chandelier (but is this really Vistosi? It does not look like Luciano’s style at all!) In most cases the hardware has been replaced.
Measurements: Diameter 50 cm, 20″; height 40 cm, 16″.
Materials and Techniques: Rullati technique. Chrome chain and canopy.
Condition: The piece would need to be cleaned and restored. It would probably need to be rewired. This would be done before shipping.
