Ready to introduce some color into your environment (never a bad idea!), not to mention some "old world" beauty and charm?! Consider installing one of these French hand-blown art glass bowls in a room or three. For a more "modern" look than the antique metalwork pictured immediately below, I can configure these lighting bowls with my famous brushed nickel tubes and canopy combo, as seen on this page. Generally these lighting bowls are 35 centimeters in diameter (about 14 inches) and they hang at a variety of lengths, typically about 27 inches (if an antique canopy/chain combination is employed). Chain links can be removed for a shorter hanging, but not added.

(A) This one's a (signed) Muller, with blues, purples, pinks, greens, grays and white. Oh, not to forget orange! And not to forget the lovely bronze canopy and chain, all original, of course... It's 35cm across, about 13 1/2 inches, and hangs down 24 inches as shown. $1650. (e-mail Jack to start the conversation)

 

(B) And while we're talking Muller, we might mention this (unusually) smaller (12 inch diameter) beauty -- with its gorgeous pinks, light browns, purples and yellows and gray and white. Mmmmmm.... is for Muller, one of the greatest art glass companies of Old World France. $1375. As shown, hanging about 15 inches long (can be lengthened). (e-mail Jack to start the conversation)

 

(C) Certainly the cordelier is one very elegant way to hang this vibrant, hand-blown art glass bowl by Muller. (e-mail Jack to start the conversation)

 

 

Most of the following bowls are by Muller, or unsigned and of similar quality:
