Large chandelier by Max Ingrand for the great Italian manufacturer Fontana Arte in 1955. The chandelier features a large crystal hat with a semi-spherical shape that encloses a glass body where inside we find its 16 lights. To accentuate its beauty we find a circular nickel-plated metal rim that reinforces the round, soft lines of the pendant. The structure is tubular nickel-plated metal that supports the entire body to the ceiling. Its six nickel-plated metal tubulars create modernity and essentiality to the whole pendant.
Given its large size, the pendant is ideal for large living rooms or dining rooms with a modernist style and for lovers of minimalist style.
