An interesting couple of triedri curved sconces.
Measures: 40 cms/16″ in height. This curving requires professional and skilled makers as the bending of the triedri was made keeping the crest out. The sconce has a great play with light. Eight elements each.
To be placed a side to a large mirror or painting. Uses two candelabra sockets. To be wired for your country specifications. Quality of crystal and curving witness Murano making. The clear part is optically neutral and exempt of cords.
There is a common attribution of the triedri construction to Venini and when bent to Carlo Nason but the situation is more complex. All considering I am assigning the pieces “in the style of”.
It’s a beautiful pair of sconces of unknown origin. I am assessing an 1980s production.
Triedri and Quadriedri were developed as biconvex clear lenses to keep the light output without shading, spreading the light to reduce the hot spot effect.
Identifications, references: Quality of glass triedri, optical feature identifies the piece as made in Murano.
Evaluation assessment: By complexity of manufacturing and quality of both hardware and glass, By the uniqueness of the pieces and the fine aesthetics.
