Large globe with the classical sequencing of 4/5 white filigrana and one in black. Here the maestro applied feathering, that in Murano is called Fenicio creating a beautiful wave design. Extremely rare and magnificent.
Identifications, references: Quality of glass and the particular technique identifies high skilled Murano maker. I’m attributing this to the Venini furnace. No label or other identification. Carries the original hardware. I am assigning a mid-1960s production time.
Evaluation assessment: By complexity of manufacturing of glass, age and carrying the original hardware.
Important note about the hardware: Original hardware can be replaced with new hardware. Rewiring on original hardware to meet your country standard. UL certification by UL registered lab upon request.
23 November update, some acutions house have attributed this to Murrina and Lino Tagliapietra. That would bring the piece to a different decade, not to change the value.
