Cloudy glass in aluminum construction. Excellent condition.
These enchanting Italian wall scones in milky glass from the 60’s, in all likelihood designed for AV Mazzega by either Aldo Nason or Carlo Nason, are an ode to craftsmanship, tradition and artistic expression.

Carlo Nason (1936) was the son of a glassmaker and grew up near the family furnace where he was introduced to the most refined techniques of the island. He designed lighting fixtures for Alt Lucialternative, AV Mazzega, Gallery Vetri D'Arte and many other companies.
