ORREFORS VENUS (pair)
Scandinavian Mid-century crystal and brass sconces by Carl Fagerlund for LYFA/Orrefors in the 1960s – in excellent vintage condition
ORREFORS VENUS (pair), crystal sconces by Carl Fagerlund for LYFA/Orrefors, in the late 1950s-early 1960s, absolutely gorgeous pair of crystal wall lights in excellent vintage condition.
Each of these beautiful sconces are made of a thick mold-blown clear crystal glass piece, curved to form a half circle and held in place by two brass screws. Behind the crystal glass sits a thin polished brass wall mounting, slightly smaller than the glass piece. The crystal glass pieces feature an embossed pattern of bubbles on the front side, and a faceted pattern on the backside for diffusing light.
When these VENUS sconces are lit, the richly textured crystal glass creates a soft illumination and spreads the emitted light in every direction. Hollywood Regency style sconces that would fit perfectly as accent lights in a living room or hallway, as bedside lights or even in an office space – no matter where you would place them, they are enchanting pieces of Scandinavian glass design.
All original, but rewired with 1,5 m (4′ 11.1″) white plastic cord – for safety and beauty – fitted with on/off switch placed at convenient height on the cord and standard Euro style two-pin plug – which can be fitted with a plug adapter, or is easily changed to your specific plug. Tested and fully functional. Cleaned, polished, labeled and packed in protective plastic cover.
