Large Venini Reticello Flush Mount Attributed To Tomaso Buzzi
Impressive Italian ceiling light by the famous Murano based company Venini. This ceiling lamp was most likely designed by Tomaso Buzzi (1900-1981), though it does show similarities with lighting designs of Carlo Scarpa as well. The 22 inch (!) satinized glass shade is decorated with the typical net shaped patern from which the reticello technique takes its name. The cream colored conical ceiling cap is elegantly decorated with brass strips. The distance between the shade and the three light bulbs is slightly adjustable.
