Beautiful large crystal glass and brass ceiling flush light by Carl Fagerlund (presumed) for LYFA/Orrefors in the 1950s – in very good vintage condition
ORREFORS CHANDELIER by LYFA/Orrefors in the late 1950s, most likely designed by Carl Fagerlund, who is famous, and celebrated, for his amazing crystal lights – Scandinavian mid century crystal glass and brass ceiling flush light in very good vintage condition.
A beautiful large crystal chandelier, comprised of a large crystal glass bowl with a thick heavy crystal glass bowl inside, stabilized and held in placed by a polished brass stem, covered with a clear crystal piece and a polished brass knob underneath the large outer crystal bowl. The brass stem acts as the center of the fixture, as it holds 3 bulb sockets, while also piercing and securing the two crystal glass bowls. The hole in each of the crystal bowls (where the stem pierces them) is protected by polished brass plates on each side of the crystal bowl.
The larger outer crystal bowl is decorated with a checkered pattern of frosted and clear lines, and features a curvy rim, while the thick inner crystal bowl is decorated with an embossed wavy pattern of amber and clear lines, and a wavy rim. The inner crystal bowl scatters the light, and ensures a warm ambiance, while the outer crystal bowl provides a soft illumination with plenty of upward directed light, but also plenty of light downwards and towards the sides.
With its good lighting qualities and very stylish expression, it would be a perfect piece for a high ceiling hall way or perhaps for a large mid century dining table – no matter where you place this ORREFORS CHANDELIER, it would make quite an impression with its stunning beauty.
An attractive 1950s piece that you do not stumble upon every day.
