Scarce 27″ semi glass flush-mount with deep incisions, original Pietro Chiesa for Fontana Arte, Milano circa 1935 (design) execution probably 1935-1945.
We have a later interpretation of this flush mount from Max Ingrand available also.
Early vintage original flush mount light by Pietro Chiesa. Iconic 27″ fixture with deep sandblasted floral incisions.
It’s a very delicate piece with outstanding glass work. The metal funnel has its preserved original lacquer.
Five large e26/27 bulbs are illuminating a large 27″ lucite disc-diffuser first, so the bulbs are not visible from underneath the light.
It’s in very good condition considering the age. The glass shows no cracks, some very minor chips around the rim.
The original lacquered aluminum parts we left untouched. The brass shows an even and golden patina.
Provenance: the lamp derives from a collection in Torino
Dimensions are 27.55“ (diameter) x 12“ (height )
Literature: Franco Deboni, Fontana Arte, pictures 28, 29.
