Here an exceptional pair of sconces.
Requires professional and skilled makers as the benting of the triedri was made keeping the crest out with a great play with light. Eight elements each.
Tall. Very stylish and deco.
Uses four candelabra sockets. To be required for your country specifications. Black filigree and curving withness Murano making. The clear part is optically neutral and exempt of cords.
Black filigree triedri cannot be made with extruded glass. 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 scones.
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, black filigree and 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.
