Star Light, Star Bright

BB.gifWe're Bond & Bowery, a website with the most diverse selection of antiques, design, and fine art in cyberspace. We highlight quality pieces without the clutter of competing ads and excessive editorial content. B & B understands the importance of a valuable acquisition and its contribution to home decoration.

Your B & B Host: I'm George Evans, and I've spent the last 20 years importing and exporting antiques and fine design pieces from Europe. I'm a New York City dealer and I have two showrooms in Lambertville, New Jersey. I am thrilled to be one of the select exhibitors in the prestigious Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show this President's Day Weekend, February 16 to 19 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.



This week, Bond & Bowery presents a great piece from our dealers at Italian Mid-Century. It's an anonymous Sculpted Murano Glass Chandelier consisting of hand-formed and sculpted clear stylized "stars," suspended from a central circular ivory ceiling mount.

Of good size, this lighting piece is important enough without breaking the bank, and not at all the typical cylinder/sphere model that is now seen everywhere. Its cascading pattern is truly beautiful.

Our Rome and New York City-based dealers at Italian Mid-Century gallery showcase some of the most affordable and often documented lighting, all fresh to the market. If you don't see what you're looking for, just ask them! Their knowledge and coverage of Italy is unsurpassed for rediscovering everything from important works of art to functional mid-century lighting.

This piece and many others are on Bond & Bowery and in Italian Mid-Century's New York showroom at Center 44, Midtown's best selection and a very professionally run antique, design, and fine art showroom. Definitely introduce yourself to Jim and Paul, the owners who will treat you like family. They make any transaction or inquiry a pleasure! Italian Mid-Century is a must-see destination that will become a regular stop anytime you're in Manhattan.

We know our chandelier will look great in your home, too.

For a more in-depth discussion about this chandelier, see my By George! interview on Murano glass with Design2Share. And visit Bond & Bowery for the item detail page and direct dealer contact information.
