Electric
Circa 1965

Fabulous pair of glass wall sconces by VECA, Tuscany. Each light consists of seven glass panels, alternately clear and intense electric blue, mounted on a chromed metal frame. Both sconces have an embossed foil label: "VECA / MADE IN ITALY".

VECA was established in 1959 by three glass makers from Empoli, in a part of Tuscany known for its glass making for over a thousand years. The workshop was set up in Castelfiorentino, initially with just one small furnace. The firm produced high quality hand-made glass lighting and other fittings in the modern style. With their structural use of glass and elegant, modern designs, items by VECA have been compared to the work of Fontana Arte. In particular, this mirror is similar to ones produced by that firm to the designs of Max Ingrand. VECA Srl. exists to this day, for many years run by the Verdiani family.

We also have a VECA mirror matching these wall sconces. Please see our listings.
