Palwa floor lamp, gilt brass frame crystal flowers

Palwa floor lamp, gilt brass frame with crystal flowers & beads, 1970`s ca, German.

This light has been thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina. It is newly rewired & earthed with gold silk cable and a new black plug. It has been PAT tested and is ready to use. This lamp is compatible with other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity. It is possible to use this lamp with a dimmer switch on the wall. Light bulbs included.

Palwa is well known for its super quality items which combine Modernist lines with luxury materials like gold plated gilt & crystal. This lamp has that unique `fairy tale` touch of 30 crystal flowers, 9 crystal `buds` & dangling crystal beads.

The unique combination of Modernism & Naturalism make this lamp a fun addition to a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour, Traditional or Contemporary.

Structurally this vintage floor lamp is composed of the base with a central column leading to a traditional candelabra form of 5 arms. It is topped with a bouquet of crystal flowers.

The solid brass frame is gold plated gilt. The central column is fluted with a polished finish.

There are 25 removable flowers distributed along the frame: 10 big, 10 medium & 5 small. Each flower is made up of 8 octagonal crystals as the `petals`. The center of the flower is in gilt brass, finished with a golden nut cap securing the flower in place. Unscrewing this bolt allows the flower to be removed.

At the top of the column there is a central cup decorated with tiny crystal beads covering the junction of the 5 main arms. This cup has a ring & screw to allow access to the cables inside.

Each main arm curves upwards and is finished with a lamp holder with a removable candle shaped cover. Carries 5 standard (E14) small screw light bulbs up to 40 Watts each. At present fitted & photographed with Candle clear 25 Watts light bulbs which are included in the price.

Under each lamp holder there is a flower shaped bobeche. These flowers complement the overall design but are different from the rest. Each is made of 6 petals composed of faceted oblong crystals inside a textured brass gilt frame. Along each main arm dangle two sets of faceted crystals. In between each arm, there are 5 thinner stems curving downwards. These are decorated with a flower in the middle, and finishing with dangling crystals.

A bouquet of flowers finishes this lamp at the top. This is made up of 15 brass stems each with a flower and 4 stems with a faceted crystal bead.

The round base is also gilt brass. It has a scrolling trim in which sits a faceted glass cover. From the centre rise 5 flowers & 5 stems with beads.

This vintage floor lamp is in very good condition. All the flowers are present with all the crystals in place. There are no chips or cracks on the crystals and only a light patina in line with age. The crystal on the base is in very good condition with no cracks or chips. The gilt finish on the brass is all present and in very good condition with a warm antique patina.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. For safe transport the flowers would be removed & wrapped individually. The rest of the frame would be bubble wrapped with an outer layer of card & foam and placed in a box, ideal for safe shipping.

Additional Dimensions:

The round base has a diameter of 23 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.
