On offer is a Murano art glass lamp base with the original foil label which reads "Genuine Venetian Glass handmade in Murano, Italy". The interior layer of glass is an opaque rosy pink which has been overlaid with an opalescent white in an air trapped raindrop pattern. The lamp base is formed in an deeply ribbed bulbous gourd shape. The top is open and the bottom has been drilled for the placement of the lamp hardware. This piece probably started its life as a complete lamp and some point lost its hardware. However, the real value of a Murano lamp is in the art glass and not the hardware components and replacement parts or lamp kits can be easily obtained. Murano lamps have become vary much in vogue in interior design once again and can go for vary dear prices indeed ($1200 - $3200). I am offering this piece at a modest price due to it lack of hardware, once restored one could have a very sought after piece on a budget. The glass is in perfect condition without any chips, cracks or repairs. Measurements are 16"T X 7 1/2 " W across the base narrowing to 2 1/2" at the neck before flaring out to 3 3/4" at the top.
