A beautiful 20th-century vintage pendant with a double adjustable wiring mechanism. The semi-spherical Murano glass shade is designed with opaline diagonal lines all over which create a unique textural effect called Mezza Filigrana. This technique involves adding transparent glass threads to the lattimo glass mixture before it is blown. This creates the beautiful swirls you see.
