Swedish Five-Arm Brass and Glass Chandelier, Sweden ca 1950s

$ 4,655
  • Description
    Chandeliers have often been used as decorative focal points for rooms since the 20th century. In Scandinavian mid-century design, where interior lighting is of particular importance, designers managed to master the art of light without blinding or crushing space perception.

    This chandelier is in the so-called candle style, originating in the traditional candelabra, with upward facing lightbulbs and multiple arms, usually arranged symmetrically. Here, the five brass arms are identical and symmetrical, holding up the patterned glass shades. Like most Swedish light fixtures of the era, this chandelier assumes a more minimalist design that does not contain prisms and illuminates a room with direct light from the lampshades. This model is equipped with translucent glass covering each lamp. The cups are shaped like a torch, with a short brass “cup” holding each one. The chandelier’s brass structure is decorative in a simple way, with gently curling arms holding the shades. A small, yet ingenious detail is the black lacquered stem in the middle. It serves as a focal point, and adds a modern touch to the design.

    The subtle decorative qualities stemming from the early 20th century art movements and the simple lines deriving from the inter-war art movements give this chandelier its elegance. The lovely glass shades and elegant flowing lines of this brass design embody Swedish mid-century lighting design.
