The so-called FILIGRAN is one of the oldest decors in art glass design in Murano. Milk glass threads are inserted into the clear glass and by turning the still liquid glass on the glassmaker's pipe, a regularly decorated glass body is created in the quality manufacture, as here with the ball lamps. The mouth at the top is ground, the mass is turned off at the bottom of the ball and then turned round in the wooden model.

good original condition
with few signs of wear. Newly wired and with a plastered assembly, the globe lights decorated with Murano FILIGRANE are now showing their best side again. The uniform design of the decoration was one of the greatest difficulties in glassmaking and could only be done by large manufacturers such as VENINI.
