Karl Springer 6-Arm Hand-Blown Glass Chandelier with Scavo Finish 1980s

$ 15,000
  • Description
    Hand blown 6 arm glass chandelier with scavo finish by Seguso (Murano Italy) for Karl Springer, American 1980's. Seguso executed all of Karl Springer’s hand-blown glass pieces and Karl’s preferred finish was scavo which means “dug up” and imitates ancient objects in the form and texture to those found in archaeological excavations. During manufacturing, a mixture of several powders (carbonates nitrates, talc, silica, etc.) is dispersed on the glass surface. Then the object is heated up to 800-Celsius degrees. A stunning work of art.

    Provenance: This chandelier comes from the collection of a gentleman who worked for Karl Springer before the showroom closed.
