Pair Stunning Vintage Italian Hand Beaded Crystal Urn Lamps circa 1930

A rare pair of spectacularly large hand beaded vintage Italian vases circa 1930. The scale of these vases is impressive and unique as is the use of various sizes of ruby and clear crystal beads. Painstakingly assembled by hand on the island of Sicily by nuns seeking to augment the convent's funds. Provided with the wire frames and materials each piece was crafted and then the electric light was inserted into the base to reflect off the interior mirror and sparkle through to the exterior. Please enlarge the photographs to see this incredible amount of detailed craftsmanship these vases required. Truly one of a kind as we have only ever seen a similar pair made with sapphire blue beads. The square bases each measure 9 1/2" on each side.
