ORREFORS GEFION CRYSTAL
Gorgeous amber pendant by LYFA/Orrefors, 1960s. Scandinavian Mid-century Modern crystal & brass ceiling light in near excellent vintage condition
ORREFORS GEFION CRYSTAL LIGHT (P 385) – Scandinavian Mid-century Modern amber crystal pendant by Carl Fagerlund for the collaboration between LYFA and Swedish glass-works, Orrefors in the 1960s. Gorgeous ceiling light with crystal glass and brass – a rare Nordic design piece in near excellent vintage condition!
Absolutely stunning crystal pendant, comprised of two thick crystal halves, double corrugated and curved to form a cylinder, stabilized and attached to each other by four brass screws and the bulb socket inside. On top of the bulb socket lies a thin brass plate, and a long brass stem ending in a brass canopy towards the ceiling.
When lit, the richly textured thick amber crystal shades creates a soft ambiance, resembling a glowing ice crystal hanging from the ceiling, while it scatters light in every direction. The open bottom gives way for a wide downward directed light – making it perfect for a hallway welcoming guests with a soft illumination. It would also make an impression hanging over a midcentury dining table setting or perhaps in a kitchen.
An enchanting piece of Scandinavian glass design.
All original including brass stem and canopy measuring about 40 cm (15.7″), but rewired with 1,20 m (3′ 11.2″) high end black fabric cord for safety and beauty. Fitted with safety clamps for easy connection to existing wiring. Tested and fully functional. The hanging height (measured from the ceiling to the bottom of the light is 65 cm (25.6″).
