A Rare Chandelier by G. Ponti and P. Chiesa for Fontana Arte

Italy, circa 1935

A rare hanging light fixture featuring four concave sheets of crystal that are graduated in width from top to bottom with scrolling tops, a frame of cream lacquered metal in the shape of tree branches which hold brass light socket cups cut into a pointed tooth pattern. The candelier also features a large brass bottom cup and ceiling cup also in the same tooth pattern. This is a prime example of the high quality, early work produced by Fontana Arte during their first years. G. Ponti and P. Chiesa for Fontana Arte, Italy circa 1935.
