Sabino

Marius-Ernest Sabino (1831-1961) was a sculptor who experimented with glass and by 1925 had created his own chemical formula for opalescent designs. He began making chandeliers of monumental proportions and in 1927 created special lighting for luxury liner the Isle de France, and a lighted fountain column for the Grand Salon of Normandy in 1935. A factory set up in Sabino’s name is still in production today.
