6 GLASS & BRASS LEAVES CHANDELIER by Carl Fagerlund for Orrefors, 1960s
This modernist chandelier was designed in a style reminiscent of works by Carl Fagerlund for Orrefors. It consists of gold glass leaves on a brass frame and features five lights. It was manufactured circa in the 1960s in Sweden. The solid brass frame with five large gold tone glass leaves together create an organic-shaped composition. The gold color on the glass adds a warm glow to the piece. The Neoclassical-inspired form with seemingly naturalistic glass leaves make a sculptural piece. The frame has a main vertical solid brass column with five horizontal brass 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 and volume. The five 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 and reflections. The five 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 vintage condition with the original clear lacquer. The brass has a vintage patina. The five glass shades are all in excellent vintage condition. The piece has been thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina and newly rewired. It is in full working order and ready to install. Light bulbs excluded. For safe transport, all the glass pieces will be removed from the frame and individually bubble wrapped.
