Vintage Gaetano Sciolari chandeliers are known for the quality of the materials and originality of design. In this case the traditional branch shaped chandelier is given a Modern twist with reflective materials and sharp geometric forms. This design is influenced by the Brutalist & Futuristic styles of the 1970`s. The combination of materials & sculptural presence make this chandelier a unique addition to a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour, Minimal, Industrial, or Contemporary.
This 1970`s Sciolari chandelier has a high quality chrome & brass frame arranged in a zigzag or chevron shape. The sculptural Modernist design consists of a center hexagonal column in polished chrome from which there are 3 arms which further divide into two external arms.
The main central column continues at the top towards the tubular polished chrome rod & ceiling cup.
Surrounding the central column there are 9 lateral columns also of hexagonal form. Each is polished chrome with a light at the top. The bottom of each column is finished with a chrome plated hexagonal cover.
These columns radiate from the central column as well as joined together with horizontal bands; these are highly polished brass & chrome.
Each lamp holder carries one standard (E14) light bulb up to 40 Watts. At present photographed & fitted with Pygmy clear light bulbs of 15 Watts which are included in the price. Other (E14) bulb shapes could be used for a different look.
At the top, the chrome rod unscrews from the frame for easy transport. This rod can also be shortened or replaced with a chain if needed. It finishes at the top in a ring with a removable S hook to fit to the ceiling, all this covered by the ceiling cup.
The ceiling cup is in polished chrome. It is fully removable and sits on a metal ring that slides along the rod and can be secured by a crew at different heights. Inside the chrome ceiling cup there is the original Sciolari maker`s paper label.
This chandelier is in very good vintage condition and sound construction. The brass & chrome surfaces are in very good condition with a warm antique patina developed over the years mostly on the brass segments. Minor superficial marks on the brass, chrome & bottom plated hexagonal covers. Some rubbing to the clear lacquer on the brass in places in line with age & wear.
