The glassmaker’s craft of using an “optic mold” to create desired interior textures and designs was invented by Roman glassworkers and flourished in Venice in the Middle Ages. Using this ancient “optic” technique, we house a glass bulb in a hand-blown oval diffuser. This diffuser is perfectly clear on the outside with a wavy horizontal pattern worked in its bulb-facing side. These interior lines are in the “optic” tradition, valued in heritage pieces such as Depression glass.
We're sorry, but we are no longer going to carry some of the items in your cart and have limited stock. We have changed the quantities for the items below:
As you all are aware, as of September 2018 a 10% tariff has been imposed on a number of products, including lighting fixtures.
At this time, we have decided against a general price increase and will absorb all imposed current tariffs. Effective January 1st, 2019, we have increased prices across the board by 5% to cover cost increases for materials and labor.
Thank you for your support and best wishes for 2019!
