1958 Bent Karlby 'Mosaik' Brass & Lacquered Metal wall light for Lyfa


Shipping to United States: Free

Very rare wall light from Lyfa Danmark. Designed in the 1950's. It has 3 conic shades in blue, green and red, attached to a brass frame. The conic shades were also applied to pendant lamp variants of the mosaic serires. This lights are still being made today. Lyfa stopped making the wall lights aftera short period of time (dont know why) so not many of these are sold back in the fifties. To find one 60+ years after is quite unique. This beauty had a rough life but for nearly 70 years old she looks pretty well I must say. She moved from Danmark to the Netherlands to end in Spain to sit there in a garagebox for 20+ years. Now I have bought her back to the Netherlands. Ready for a new home (or museum) to shine once again! Sometimes its hard not to touch the paint and just redo it all. But I think with a rare piece of art like this its better to keep it as original as possible. note: if you like the light but think the damage is to severe: we can restore it for you in the exact original colours and tone (but we have to remove the orioginal paint for that) In our workshop we have a professional art and metal restorer to make your piece of art as new (or old) as you wish. Please contact me for details about this. Condition *********** The liigh in used (but complete) condition. The paint is damaged but still original. At this point I have chosen not to restore it. The choise is up to the custommer.

Because we offer and ship items all around the world, our service philosophy is to ensure that your light has the proper plug. Our lamps come with a European (EU) plug as standard. You have the option of having an American (US) or an English (UK) plug installed (free of charge). This option is available in the dropdown menu "plug type" at the top of the product page. The lamp comes with an EU plug if you don't specify otherwise. Packaging with care and love ******************************** Our products are (most of the time) irreplaceable, they are packaged and dispatched with the extra care they require! Only shipping materials appropriate for international shipping are used. Your item will be wrapped in soft foam or bubble wrap before being placed in a secure inner box. The entire package is then enclosed in a thicker cardboard outer box. To further secure your shipment against outside assault, the space around the inner box is filled with air cushions and/or Styrofoam. Very fragile items are even boxed is an custom made wooden box to make sure your purchace will be deliverd in perfect condition. As a result, we attempt to do everything we can to prevent damage during shipping so that you may enjoy your product as intended. All orders are shipped within 1-5 business days. Insurance *********** Your shipping is always insured up to 500 euros as standard. I increase the insurance to the value of the lamp for more expensive lamps. So there's no need to be concerned if the package is lost or damaged during shipping. You will always receive a new product or a complete refund of your purchase price. Please read the insurance policy's terms and conditions! Damage must be notified within 7 days of receipt, or we will be unable to file an insurance claim (condition of PostNL). Only if it can be shown that the item was correctly wrapped will the insurance pay out in the case of damage. In the event that the product is damaged, I will need images of the packing as well as the product itself to show the insurance company that the goods was correctly packaged. As a result, please maintain the packaging until the images are received. The insurance provider also requests a damage report for packages transported outside the EU. This report should be requested at your local post office. Damage Report: To have this report made, the consignee must bring the damaged contents, box, and all packaging materials to the post office on site. Unfortunately, without this report, your request cannot be processed. Follow us! *********** Are you interested in learning more about our other great lamps?
