This lovely light came from the hallway of a late 1930s Melbourne bayside mansion.

In Rose Pink Murano glass with brass fittings, it has beautiful oxide patina on the brass. Not as fragile as its delicate appearance suggests, the light is strong and sound.

The following quote gives some idea of the design history of this style of lighting.

"To appeal to gentler, more conservative tastes, Barovier Toso produced a range of lilting, sinuous lighting pieces that are often described as embodying “Liberty Style” — the Italian term for Art Nouveau ... The hallmarks of the style in Barovier & Toso works are elements of glass in the shape of thick leaves, fronds and flower petals, deployed along with other naturalistic ornament in sconces, pendants and chandeliers.
