Fabien Barbera, antiques dealer in the Carré Rive Gauche in Paris, created and launched his first decorative objects collection under the brand name BARBERA. It was a great opportunity for him to combine his two passions : gold leaf and scented candles.
BARBERA Paris creates votives, made out of glass, with various shapes and sizes. Most of the collection, called « Les Gobelets », is to be used with scented candles. Candle refills are available. A second series, called « ANTICO », of baroque inspiration, is composed of candle jars.
The technique is that of the « verre églomisé », glass gilded. A technique that Fabien Barbera knows perfectly, as he's been restoring gilt wood for more than ten years. Decorations are hand-painted inside the glass, and then imprisoned by the gold leaf. (22 carat gold). Gold leaf is semi transparent, and gives the flame a beautiful blue vibrating colour. Every votive is painted by Fabien in his parisian workshop.
Parisian products by essence, BARBERA votives and decorative objects will fit any house, whatever its style. The collection range includes yellow and white gold. Everyone can choose his favourite colour, in BARBERA lovely shop in the heart of historic Paris, in the 7th arrondissement, next to the Musée d'Orsay and Serge Gainsbourg's house.
