Sold! (approx. € EUR / $ USD)

A vintage, scarce and very substantial 'Efeso' series glass table lamp, designed by Ercole Barovier for Barovier & Toso, Murano, c.1963.

As with other 'Efeso' series pieces, the lamp is thick-walled and decorated a pulegoso (with 'frothy' random bubbles) and unmelted coloured granules (blue-grey granules, in this instance) suspended and encased in transparent glass to create a tactile, masculine and semi-opaque form.

The lamp has been fitted with a period-style Italian-made Bakelite E27 lampholder, with in-built switch, which is suitable for most modern British and traditional European shades. It has been rewired with premium vintage-style Dyke & Dean twisted fabric cable.
