Impressive hanging lamp / chandelier from Sweden. Very heavy and of excellent quality.
6 hand-blown crystal cylinders give beautifully distributed light. Works on 6 x e 14 lamp (small fitting) suitable for LED.
Electricity has been tested and works.
The lamp is in good condition, but it is 60 years old. The glass is undamaged. At this point I have chosen not to polish the brass. This process removes the pantina that some collectors like to keep.
If you want to have the lamp polished, I can do this for you (free of charge). All brass parts will then appear gold shiny (and like new). You can indicate this in a message with your order if desired.
Height: 31.5 in. (80 cm) (can be ajusted)

Depth: 15.75 in. (40 cm)
Swedish glass and lighting designer Carl Fagerlund was born in 1915. Although information about this designer is limited, it is confirmed that he was educated at Stockholm A.C.S., where he qualified as a design teacher. From 1946 to 1980, he worked as a designer at the venerable Swedish glassworks Orrefors, known for its high-quality crystal and glass art.
The Swedish design philosophy of “beautiful things for everyday life” is actualized in the vintage glassware of Orrefors. Founded in 1898, this glass manufacturer was one of the leading companies in the Scandinavian modernism movement and is revered by collectors for the fine craftsmanship and innovation of its superlative art glass.
Orrefors began making art glass — works that, distinct from mass-production pieces, are made in small numbers to showcase the skills and talents of artists and artisans — in 1913. Two of the first artists hired by the firm were Simon Gate and Edward Hald, who worked initially in the organic Art Nouveau style, and later proved adept with the geometric imagery of the Art Deco period.
Hald and Gate worked closely with glassblowers to refine traditional glassmaking methods, creating new materials such as "graal" glass. In the graal technique a design made with colored glass is encased in layers of transparent glass, preserving the image while the overall glass form is worked and shaped. Orrefors won an international following when it presented such pieces in Paris in 1925 at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes — the design fair whose name gave rise to the term Art Deco.
In the years following that success, Orrefors attracted more dynamic and experimental artists such as Vicke Lindstrand and Edvin Ohrström, who joined the company in the 1930s. Lindstrand and Ohstrom worked with glassblowers to create the "ariel" glass technique, an innovation that produces deeper, richer imagery that seems to morph and flow as light is refracted by the glass.
The Orrefors glass factory in Orrefors was closed in 2013. The Orrefors Museum is still there, open during the summer.
Attention to detail
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
Because our products are frequently 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.
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.
