Description Pair of Gino Sarfatti Model #10 sconces in red for Arteluce. Executed in red painted aluminum and custom fabricated period styled brass backplates designed to mount over a standard American j-box for hardwiring. Ball jointed arm allows flexible shade adjustments and multiple configurations.

Originally designed between 1937-1941, the simplicity of Sarfatti's iconic Model #10 "detto Calla" or "Lily" shade design with its sculptural shaping of the materials make for an incredibly refined example of the lighting master's incomparable style. Salvaged from a midcentury building in Italy slated for demolition, these were originally configured in multi-shade half rings that were mounted around pillars. The original paint was beyond saving on all but a handful of lamps, which we have available in the original green in a separate listing. Professionally repainted black and white versions also available.

Price is for the pair. 8 pairs available in red.

Ref: Romanelli & Severi "Gino Sarfatti: 1938-1973, selected works" p. p. 386 + various configurations pp. 69 & 151.
