Hillebrand wall light 47 cm tall, brass & glass

Hillebrand wall light, impressively tall at 47 cm, made in the Brutalist style from handmade glass on a brass frame, 1970`s ca, German.

Thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina. Newly rewired, earthed, in full working order & ready to install. Light bulbs included. It is possible to install this light in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity. It can be used with a dimmer.

This large sculptural vintage wall light, by quality German manufacturer Hillebrand, has an impressive Brutalist ‘ice’ effect glass with undulating form. The quality glass alongside the gold tone of the solid polished brass gives this Minimalist design elegance.

This light is ideal for a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Classical, Hollywood Regency, Minimalist or Contemporary. The large size & sculptural design make it perfect when a single wall light is needed, say in a corridor, stairwell or bathroom.

At the focal point there is a large handmade Murano clear glass shade. The outside surface is polished to a shine and has an undulated wave pattern simulating ice or water. The internal surface is textured with a layer of sparkling crystal shards. The result is a softly diffused light with depth & delicate sense of movement.

The removable glass shade slides down into the frame. The glass shade sits securely in place and can be easily removed to gain access to change the 2 light bulbs.

The base consists of a central rectangular vertical metal column, in white lacquer, with solid brass folds on each side, where the glass shade slides on. There are two gilt metal lamp holders, both facing upwards. The base can easily be screwed to the ceiling or wall through 2 holes, one at the top and the other at the bottom.

This vintage wall light carries 2 standard screw E 27 light bulbs up to 60 Watts each. At present fitted and photographed with 25 Watts clear Candle light bulbs. These are included in the price.

At the bottom of the base there is the original pull cord switch, this allows the light to be switched on/off either from the light itself or the main switch on the wall. This pull cord switch could be easily removed if preferred.

This vintage light is in very good condition. The glass shade is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. The frame`s solid brass surfaces have the original clear lacquer in good condition, with minor rubbing and a warm age patina on the brass in line with age. The original paper Hillebrand maker`s label is present on the reverse of the frame.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. For safe transport the shade will be removed, bubble wrapped & boxed individually. Together these pieces would fit securely into a box ideal for shipping.

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.
