Clear crystal & brass ceiling light by Fagerlund for LYFA/Orrefors in the 1960s, all in excellent vintage condition
ORREFORS GEFION CRYSTAL LIGHT (P 385) – Scandinavian Mid-century Modern crystal pendant by Carl Fagerlund, produced by 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 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 polished brass screws and a polished inner brass frame. This inner frame holds the bulb socket and secures the long brass stem which ends in a brass canopy towards the ceiling.
When lit, the richly textured thick crystal halves create a soft ambiance, resembling a glowing ice crystal hanging from the ceiling, while it scatters light in every direction. The open top and bottom give way for both upward and downward directed light – making it perfect for a hallway welcoming guests with a soft illumination. It would also make an impression hanging over a mid-century 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 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″).
