Impressive hanging lamp with crystal glass and brass by Carl Fagerlund (presumed) for LYFA/Orrefors in the 1960s, in excellent vintage condition
ORREFORS MERKUR, crystal pendant light by Carl Fagerlund (presumed) for LYFA/Orrefors in the 1960s – gorgeous Scandinavian lamp with crystal glass and brass, in excellent vintage condition.
An impressive crystal lamp comprised of two thick double corrugated crystal glass pieces, held together by a polished brass stem and two polished brass plates. Each of the crystal pieces is curved to form a UFO-like shape when put together. The brass stem acts as center for the lamp, securing both the crystal pieces and the brass plates, but also allow for 6 bulbs sockets to be concealed underneath the glass pieces.
When lit, the clear crystal glass pieces with theirs embossed bubbles scatters the emitted light in every direction, leaving a warm soft illumination in the room. The glowing effect and the UFO-like shape would make quite an impression hanging in a hall way, in a living room over a dining table, or even in a office space. Very attractive piece that you do not stumble upon everyday!
All original, fitted with safety clamps for easy connection to existing wiring and short connection cord. Including the original brass stem and brass canopy, which makes the total hanging height 18.7″/ 47,5 cm (measured from the ceiling to the bottom of the light). Tested and fully functional. Polished, cleaned, labeled and packed in protective plastic cover.
