Vintage Italian Hand Beaded Venetian Glass Coral Spray, Italy circa 1940

A vintage Italian hand beaded Venetian Glass coral spray from Italy circa 1940. This exceptional example of hand work recreates the spell of an actual coral branch in both delicacy and colour using individually hand blown glass beads. After the beads were strung together the slender strands were carefully wrapped around the interior frame to entirely sheathe the structure. The manner in which the glass beads capture and reflect light give the spray a dappled effect of being undersea. The hand cast candlestick in which the spray is mounted is made in Venice at a foundry and copies an original design from the 1600's chosen to complement the coral spray.
