Thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina; newly rewired, in full working order & ready to install. Light bulbs included.
This Modernist chandelier is attributed to Carl Fagerlund for Orrefors Lighting. The quality solid brass frame with 5 gold tone large glass leaves together create an elegant & organic-shaped composition . The gold colour on the glass, rarely seen in this design, adds a warm glow to the piece.
The Neoclassical form with naturalistic-like glass leaves make a sculptural piece that would suit a range of interiors; Traditional, Art Deco, French, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour or Contemporary.
The frame has a main vertical solid brass column with 5 brass horizontal arms in a sunburst shape. Each arm curves upwards to complete the leaf design. The removable glass shades attach to each arm by two brass screws. At the bottom the frame is finished with a decorative solid brass finial.
Each sculptural clear glass shade is shaped with a texture pattern like a leaf. The curved base of the glass rests on the brass arm giving this piece depth & volume.
The 5 glass shades have an external gloss finish. The internal side has a layer of sparkling specks of crystal shards which further contribute to the depth & reflections .
The 5 lamp holders have solid brass tube covers and each carries a big standard screw light bulb (E27) up to 60 Watts each.
At the top there is a chain which runs to the original solid brass ceiling cup. At the top of the chain there is another vertical tubular brass portion with a ring and an S hook to fit the piece to the ceiling.
The solid brass frame is in very good condition with the original clear lacquer. The brass has an antique patina giving character. The 5 glass shades are all in excellent condition with only one having a minor internal crack at the point of attachment/hole to the brass arm. This is not visible when the piece is assembled.
Packing is offered free of charge. For safe transport, all the glass pieces will be removed from the frame and individually bubble wrapped. This chandelier easily fits within a box for shipping.
