Extremely rare Venetian 15 light chandelier incorporating the finest Murano glass

work and the finest wrought iron, by or from the circle of Umberto Bellotto (or

Alessandro Mazzucotelli). c. 1915

Bellotto broke new ground in incorporating these two apparently contrasting materials at

the beginning of the 20th century.

However, this chandelier also harks back to the very earliest cathedral chandeliers of

the Byzantine and Mediaeval periods, using lit wicks and oil in multiple glass or pottery

containers, arranged around a suspended ring structure. 

96 cm x 90 cm diameter
