This is a Tommaso Buzzi well known sconce design. Set of three pieces. The glass is thick and massiccio. The feather is made with a seta glass, a very diluted lattimo color that plays well with light. Rare to see.
It’s covered with clear glass and that leaves a clear line in-between the feather and the stem. The stem is a spiral tight rigadin glass with gold leaf.
Hardware is in gold plated iron. Interesting the backplate is placed on the back of the bulb filament, allowing a warm reflection of ligth and the possibility to be used on a dark or wooden wall.
A great sculptural sconce.
They come from a villa from the Colli Berici, near Vicenza. There are some differences to discard a Buzzi original. Buzzi used for these elements Pulegoso and not silk glass. Iron and gold plated comes into fixtures with the 50s of Sciolari. This might be a later edition from the second part of the 20th century.
For this reason I am listing this in the style of.
