Italians make great pasta but they also make one great vintage glass globe chandelier. A little known fact that Italy is a good source for vintage lighting. Inspired by an Italian glass globe light fixture from the 1950’s, this chandelier is ready to out shine your best pasta dish. Eggplant parmesan, baked ziti or penne with vodka sauce. Give it your best shot but I would still choose this vintage glass globe chandelier. Believe me I a big fan of Italian cooking. In fact, three cans of tomato puree, two sticks of butter, one cup of sugar and a single onion make for a really tasty marinara sauce. But I would miss a meal for to have this vintage glass globe chandelier hanging over my dining table while serving pasta to my family and friends.
Vintage Glass Globe Chandelier
I think what makes this light fixture so unique is the construction of steel tubes onto a large square metal plate that lies flush on the ceiling. This is a ceiling canopy like no other. It comes with eight additional steel tubes that make this chandelier more sculptural than functional as a light source. If you want a larger chandelier just add more steel tubes. Attach the over sized glass globes to the end of each steel tube and this light becomes a work of art. Hang just one chandelier over the dining room table or hang several vintage glass globe chandeliers in the lobby of a hotel or waiting room of a large commercial restaurant. It will provide plenty of light and visual interest for guests and waiting customers. Who knew that Italians could make good pasta and great lighting. Arrivederci.
