Ernst Palme wall lights for Palwa, a pair with silver-plated frames & 26 crystals, 1960`s, German.

This pair of wall lights has been thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina. Both are newly rewired & earthed, in full working order & 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.

Palme Lighting is known for the quality of the crystals & originality of design. In this case the traditional sconce is given a Modern twist with teardrop crystals & geometric forms. This Palwa design is a great balance between the Brutalist style of the 60`s with Hollywood Regency glamour & luxury materials. The silver-plated frame has a Brutalist design and is elegantly decorated with quality teardrop crystals beautifully reflecting the light. The combination of these styles makes these wall lights a unique addition to a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour, Traditional or Contemporary.

The frame of each light has 3 parts: a canopy with crystals fitted to a rectangular plate which has the lamp holder, and a brass wall bracket.

The silver-plated canopy is in the shape of a crown. The surface of this `crown` is decorated with an undulated textured pattern in the Brutalist style. It has at the top 7 rounded points curving outwards, each with a tear shape crystal. The bottom portion of the canopy is of similar design, with 7 rounded points facing inwards, however each is without a crystal. The middle of the canopy is composed by the 6 arches, each with a dangling crystal. In total there are 13 crystals distributed in two tiers on each light. These crystals are removable if needed for transport.

Each canopy is fitted to a rectangular silver gilt plate. Each side there are 2 cylindrical screws attaching these together. This plate has one white metal lamp holder.

There are 3 holes on the rectangular plate which line up to the wall bracket; 3 small brass screws secure the composition. Each wall bracket has two holes to screw to the wall.

There is one lamp holder positioned horizontally inside each light. Each carries one standard big screw E 27 light bulb up to 100 Watts. At present fitted & photographed with clear Golf light bulbs of 25 Watts, which are included in the price. It is possible to use other E 27 bulbs.

This pair of vintage wall lights is in very good condition. The silver-plated surfaces are in good condition with a warm antique patina and minor marks in line with age. All the 26 crystal droplets are present, original and in excellent condition with no chips or damages.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care in packing. For safe transport the crystal droplets will be removed & packed separately. Each frame will be wrapped in a layer of bubble wrap & soft card. The frames along with the crystals would easily fit into a box with loose fill packing peanuts ideal for safe posting.

We have available in stock a matching chandelier, item #11086.


Founded in 1747, Palme Chandeliers is one of the oldest chandelier manufacturing companies in the world. Originally based in North Bohemia, the center of the art of glass industry, the Company initially worked to commissions for the Royal Courts. In the 20th Century requests came in from other prestigious building and hotels. In 1945, the Chandelier factory was nationalized by the Government of Czechoslovakia, and consequently, the German owner and his workers immigrated to Germany where the company is now based.
