A LITTLE BUBBLY

 
I make a point of stopping by John Salibello's row of shops on Manhattan's Eastside Antique District (East 60th Street) whenever I am in the neighborhood. His three shops are home to some of the most unusual decorative chandeliers, sconces and table lamps I've ever seen. The shop windows are breathtaking-when I visited last Friday, huge chandeliers composed of clusters of glass bubbles hung precariously over a white lacquered sideboard.  Simply stunning!


Six tier chandelier composed of lattimo glass elements by Venini (1960).
Opaque white frosted globe chandelier, Italy 1960.

Large chrome fourteen arm circular chandelier featuring smoked glass by Sciolari, Italy 1960.



Nickel and chrome sputnik ceiling fixture featuring rays terminating in clear glass balls, Italy 1960.

Bubbles = Fun and those certainly are!

I'm thinking it's just what a cleaning lady wants to see when she walks in on the job for the 1st time :) or :O
