Rare and imposing Murano glass cascade pendant light
the pendant consists of a white painted steel frame, made up of seven graduated circular rings with supports. The handmade glass sections hang individually on the ringed frames, thus producing a cascade effect. Each of the unique glass pieces range in colour from clear, amber, yellow, red and orange. The larger cascading outer pieces are shaped as stylised loops with scrolls, leading to ribbed blade shaped sections beneath.
