Additional Information: The "Canneto Grande" sculpture is comprised of many individual blown glass elements stacked on metal rods to form a towering bamboo tree. Two such sculptures are offered in this sale, one in red and one in blue. Note: Due to the number of individual glass elements which require disassembly, this lot is considered a complex item for shipping purposes. Palm Beach Modern Auctions does not install, disassemble or remove complex/electrified items (i.e. chandeliers). When selecting a shipper, please ensure they are capable of handling this.
