With it’s inspiration drawn from 16th century Italian paintings, this lamp is an homage to the Veronese vase manufactured by the Venini company in the early 1920’s. Ribbon-like latticino canes co-mingle with solid striped canes in shades of white and opaline.
Hand-blown in Rhode Island with traditional Italian cane techniques.
