Mazzega Carlo Nason style chandelier Murano glass

ROOMSCAPE
Mazzega Carlo Nason style chandelier, blue vaseline Murano glass on a gold-plated gilt frame, 1990`s ca, Italian.

This chandelier has been gently cleaned while respecting the vintage patina. It is newly rewired & earthed with gold silk cable, fully working and PAT tested by an electrician. Light bulbs included. This chandelier can be used with a dimmer. It is possible to use this chandelier in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity.

Carlo Nason `Firenze` Suspension Design Chandelier is the 20th Century Design Classic which inspired this vintage piece.

Good craftsmanship and attention to detail, this chandelier shares many features of the originals: Murano glass flat ribbed droplets both hang and are staggered on a tiered metal frame. These ribbed glass blades were made in Murano with the original "piastra" technique.

This large size is perfect for contemporary decorating, either above a table, in a staircase, or as a focal point of any room. The tiered form with its cascading waterfall pattern is grand, but still `light`. This look is ideal for a range of interiors such as Traditional, Art Deco, French, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour or Contemporary.

Particularly attractive is the fluorescent, creamy iridescent appearance of the glass. Depending on the light source the reflection goes from soft creamy light blue with a golden hue. When a spot light is directed through, the colour shifts to fluorescent blue.

The texturised glass shades appear to hang lightly giving a sense of movement and beautifully reflecting the light.

Each glass shade is thick & strong. At the top there is a long hook portion to secure it to the frame.

Arranged down the 3 tiers there are 60 handmade Murano glass shades; 32 hang on the top tier, 20 on the second tier & 8 on the bottom tier. There are 3 lengths of glass shades: Large, Medium & Short. When in place, the pattern creates a staggered or draped `sea weed` like effect.

Each tier carry the following composition of shades:

Top large tier: 8 Long, 16 Medium, 8 Short
Middle tier: 5 Long, 10 Medium, 5 Short
Bottom tier: 4 Long, 2 Medium, 2 Short

The quality solid gilt frame has a polished finish. From a central column there are 3 concentric tiered circles, each of which is secured to the column by several horizontal supports.

The top row of 6 pivotal lamp holders rotate in various directions to create different effects and angles with the lights. The middle tier has 3 lamp holders facing down. At the bottom there is 1 down lighter.

The chandelier carries 9 standard E 14 small screw light bulbs up to 40 Watts each, and 1 standard E 27 big screw light bulb up to 60 Watts at the bottom.

At the top there is a decorative gilt ceiling cup and gilt chain. This chain could be lengthened or shortened as needed.

This vintage chandelier is in very good condition. All the glass shades are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The metal frame is sound with a light patina in line with age.

Packing is offered free of charge. This chandelier travels well as all the components can be easily wrapped separately. Each glass shade would be wrapped in card & bubble wrap. Small groups of glass shades would be boxed. These boxes would be placed in a larger box with the frame. The frame would be wrapped in bubble wrap and reinforced with card. These items would be supported inside with filler.

Additional Dimensions:

The total Height with the chain is: 170 cm.

The Height of the frame from top with the glass but no chain is: Height: 130 cm, Width: 55 cm , Depth: 55 cm.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
