Max Ingrand for Fontana Arte rare exquisite ceiling light or chandelier model 2067 featuring a large thick acid-etched crystal glass diffuser with polished beveled edges supported by a central brass stem ending in a decorative brass element. This sculptural light has a lovely organic freeform shaped glass elegantly suspended by tapering brass stem with a central brass decorative cutout element mimicking the glass shape. When lit, this extraordinary ceiling light illuminates beautifully through the sharp acid-etched designs and thick polished beveled edges.
This model is similar to the Max Ingrand ceiling light model 1748, but the glass diffuser is much larger. And it was only produced for a short period of time by Fontana Arte, so is much more rare.
