This early Dalia chandelier features rich amber glass petals. Made of crystal and brass, the first of these forms were made in 1953 and are attributed to Giuseppe Raimondi, a designer at Fontana Arte. Under the artistic direction of Max Ingrand, Fontana Arte produced the popular Dalia in various forms for a number of years. One variation of this form was exhibited at the 10th Triennale in Milan in 1954; other variants include a version with petals gathered on a calyx (1954) and a double version with two rows of petals (1958).
