Pair Ercole Barovier Rugiada Table Lamps

$ 16,500
  • Description
    A rare pair of ‘Dew Glass’ table lamps, produced by Barovier & Toso. Ercole Barovier invented the Rugiada technique in 1938, and the process was patented and exclusive to the company. It involves the application of colorless glass grit and shards onto the surface of clear glass during production.

    When the object is then heated, the particles are partially melted and fuse to the solid surface, creating an internal crackled design. The technique was often used to make shades, where the texture produces marvelous lighting effects. In these examples, the technique marries to the pyramidal form to evoke both the ancient and modern qualities of the glass. Rows of round appliqués running down two sides provides additional sculptural interest.

    Shades not included.

    Measures: 27" to top of milk glass. Glass is 14.5" high.
