Brass wall lights set of two Carl Fagerlund Orrefors, 1960s, Swedish.

These wall lights have been thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina. Each is newly rewired, earthed, fully working and ready to install. Light bulbs included. It is possible to install these lights in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity. They can be used with a dimmer.

This set of two vintage sculptural wall lights is attributed to Carl Fagerlund for Orrefors Lighting.

The combination of Modernism & floral makes this pair of wall lights an unique addition to a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour, Traditional or Contemporary.

From a central base in solid polished brass extends a single arm of rectangular section. This curves upwards to complete the leaf design. The base is a rectangle with curved corners.

Each sculptural clear glass shade is shaped with a textured acanthus leaf shape. The shade is indented in the centre to `rest` on the brass arm giving this piece depth & volume. The upper edge of the glass leaf curves slightly outwards to finish the design. The shades have an external gloss finish, internally there is a layer of sparkling specks of crystal shards creating depth & great reflections. The glass shade securely attaches by two decorative brass screws internally to the arms. The shade is removeable for cleaning & packing.

The lamp holder sits on the arm facing upwards. It has a decorative cylindrical shape solid brass tube cover.

Each lamp holder carries a small standard screw light bulb E14 up to 60 Watts each. At present fitted with Candle clear light bulbs of 40 Watts (as photographed), which are included in the price, but could take any other E 14 light bulb shape for a different look..

To attach the light to the wall, there is a separate hidden removable square metal plate.  The plate has two holes to fit to the wall. This plate screws from the topside of the main polished brass frame inside the frame.

Each wall light can be either operated from the main switch on the wall, or from the base of each light itself as each has a pull cord switch dangling from the bottom. This is finished with a white Lucite cord weight. It is possible to remove this if preferred.

These wall lights are both in very good condition. The 2 glass shades are in very good condition with no chips or cracks. The polished brass frames have the original clear lacquer present in good condition, with a warm antique patina developed on the brass under the lacquer in some places adding character. One of the frames have a tiny hole at the bottom, probably from made by previous owner.

The original manufacturer paper label is inside the frames.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. For safe transport, all the glass pieces would be removed and individually   wrapped in a layer of bubble wrap and soft cardboard. The frames would be wrapped in bubble wrap. Together these parts would easily fit into a box ideal for posting and shipping.

Additional dimensions:

Each glass leaf has the following dimensions: Height: 24 cm, Width: 13 cm.

The rectangular brass base that attaches to the wall has the following dimensions: Height: 13 cm, Width: 7 cm, Depth: 2 cm.
