Carl Fagerlund Orrefors chandeliers a pair

ROOMSCAPE
Carl Fagerlund Orrefors chandeliers, a matching pair, gold glass leaves on a brass frame, 5 lights, 1960`s ca, Sweden.

This pair of chandeliers have been thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina; both newly rewired & earthed, in full working order & ready to install. Light bulbs included. It is possible to install these lights in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity. They can be used with a dimmer.

This pair of Modernist chandeliers are attributed to Carl Fagerlund for Orrefors Lighting. The quality solid brass frame with 5 gold tone large glass leaves together create an elegant & organic-shaped composition . The gold/amber colour tone of the glass, rarely seen in this design, adds a warm glow to these pieces.

The Neoclassical elegant form with naturalistic-like glass leaves make a sculptural pair that would suit a range of interiors from Traditional to Art Deco, French, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour or Contemporary.

Each frame is in solid polished brass. It has a main vertical tubular column with 5 horizontal arms in a sunburst shape. Each arm curves upwards to complete the leaf design. The 5 removable glass shades attach internally to each arm by two decorative brass screws. At the bottom, the frame is finished with a decorative solid brass finial.

Each sculptural clear glass shade is shaped with a texture pattern like a leaf. The curved base of the glass rests on the brass arm giving this piece depth & volume. The 5 glass shades have an external gloss finish. The internal side has a layer of sparkling specks of crystal shards which further contribute to the depth & reflections .

The 5 lamp holders have solid brass tube covers and each carries a big standard screw light bulb E27 up to 60 Watts each. At present fitted & photographed with 25 Watts Candle clear light bulbs, that are included in the price.

At the top of the frame there is a decorative hook where a brass chain attaches. At the top of the chain there is another vertical tubular brass portion with a ring and the original vintage solid brass ceiling cup, where inside there is an S hook to fit the piece to the ceiling.

The solid brass frame is in very good condition with the original clear lacquer present. The brass has a warm antique patina giving character. The 10 glass shades are all in excellent condition, apart from two of them that have a small hairline close to one of the holes (as photographed), hardly noticeable.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. For safe transport, all the glass pieces will be removed from the frame and individually bubble wrapped. These pair of chandeliers easily fits within a box for shipping.

Additional Dimensions:

Height of only the frame (without the chain) is 37 cm.

Each glass leaf has a Height of 27 cm, Width of 17 cm & Depth of 8 cm.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
