CHANDELIER by Bent Karlby for LYFA in the early 1940s – attractive and very charming Danish Modern opal glass and brass pendant lighting in good vintage condition.
A very stylish chandelier with three circular double-layered glass shades. The glass shades rests on a brass base featuring the signature Karlby decorative rim, echoed on the brass lids on top.
