Handblown turquoise Murano baloton glass floor lantern with bronze base 
A very beautiful tall aquamarine, (or light turquoise) Murano ‘baloton’ glass floor lamp with a steel wire frame and bronze base, handcrafted by glass masters on the world-famous glass-making island of Murano in the Venice lagoon.
The glass is first hot-blown by the glass master, and then stamped with a special ‘baloton’ mould to create a raised criss-cross pattern on the glass. This is a very typical Venetian glass-making design which dates back as far as the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and is still very popular today.
We are able to offer you three alternative finishes – amber baloton, transparent crystal baloton, and smooth clear crystal. Please contact us if you would like further information, or would like to place on order for any of these options.
This piece may bear some tiny imperfection that will attest to its having been fashioned entirely by hand, thus increasing its value and uniqueness. It is based on a historical design and has been crafted using purely traditional techniques.
