Elegant French lamp in opaline glass with a milky white color; the base, also in opal glass, has a denser texture and the color fades on the blue; the design is linear and essential, typical of the 1950s; when it is on, the lamp assumes an even more marked elegance and diffuses a soft suffused light; on the edge, there is a small scratch that has been ground and polished overtime to make it imperceptible (see photo). The opal is slightly translucent glass, opacified with phosphates and chlorides of sodium and calcium with the addition of tin and talcum oxides, thus obtained various shades of colors from pastel to milk-white; opaline glass is much less dense and opaque than milky glass (very similar to porcelain); the opaline in the strict sense is a French product that was born at the end of the 18th century - beginning of the 19th century in imitation of the Murano and German semi-opaque glasses of the seventeenth century and which has its moment of maximum splendor from 1820 to 1870 thanks to the achievements of the French factories ( Baccarat, Saint Louis and Choisy-le-Roy); from 800 onwards, the opaline spread all over the world with the handicraft production of everyday objects. France, from ancient times to modern times, is recognized as a producer of the best quality opaline glass. D. cm.26 H. cm.30
