CHROME, ALUMINUM AND CAST GLASS ICE CUBE CHANDELIER
Designed by Gaetano Sciolari circa 1970s, unsigned
Item # 801JBP27P
Designed by Gaetano Sciolari during the third quarter of the 20th century, this chandelier follows in his distinctive taste for cubism in lighting. It utilizes polished chromed steel in the light housing to receive the custom cast glass lamp shades, these joined along brushed aluminum arms to the tallest centermost lighting element. A custom cut steel chain hangs the chandelier attractively. It remains a very striking and rather high quality lighting element, beautifully polished and nearly translucent in some settings with its inherent reflectivity.
Measurements: 23” 1/8” W x 23” D x 29 5/8” H from underside to top of chrome chain
Traces of tarnish and oxidization, some light surface pitting. Cast glass in excellent condition, free of any notable flaw. Wiring is as-is and has not been inspected - as with all of our lighting, we recommend the wiring be inspected by and the chandelier installed by a certified electrician.
