Very rarely available sconces manifest the genius of Tobia Scarpa. The goblet shaped battuto glass diffuser with a undulating mouth, containing a single light, mounted to a patinated brass back plate.
Metal with an age appropriate and very attractive patination, glass of a diaphanous amber color, would make a wonderful addition to your collection.
This model of the vase is illustrated by Franco Deboni, Venini Glass - Catalogue 1921-2007, Turin 2007, no. 165.
