About this item

Sciolari wall lights brass & chrome frames with glass shades, 1970`s Italian.

This pair of original 1970`s wall lights have been thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina. They are newly rewired, earthed & ready to install. Light bulbs included.

This pair of Gaetano Sciolari vintage wall lights are in the style of `Decontructivism`. The component parts have been delineate and executed in different metals (chrome, gold gilt & brass) to accentuate this fragmentation. The result, part Minimalist part Cubist, is interesting, sophisticated & sculptural.

At the focal point of each light there is a clear glass shade with layered geometric forms. Behind the shade is the lamp holder in solid brass positioned at the centre of the convex chrome frame of 2 arching bands.

The chrome bands end with a vertical chrome pillar either side. Screwed to these pillars are 2 gold plated gilt pillars. The glass shade slides inside these pillars. The shade is securely held by 2 decorative screws and therefore easy to remove for cleaning & packing. The result of this fragmentation, layering & different materials is depth & interesting reflections.

On the reverse side of the frame is a rectangular chrome plinth base which has the wall attachment. There is a removable threaded pin traveling through a hole on either side of the base. The pin ends with 2 round chrome nuts. This pin also runs through two small L shape plates to be fitted to the wall.

Each wall light carries 1 standard small screw light bulb (E14) up to 60 watts. At present photographed with Pygmy 15 Watts light bulbs, but could take other light bulb shapes.

Both wall lights are in very good condition. The glass shades are in perfect condition. The metal frames are in very good condition with some vintage patina, such as minor marks on the gold gilt surfaces.

These vintage wall lights sell together, this price is for the pair.

Packing is offered free of charge. The glass shades would be removed and wrapped separately. The frames would also be wrapped. Together these parts would fit safely in a box, ideal for posting.

Additional dimensions:

The glass shade is: Height: 12cm, Width:18cm, Depth: 1.5 cm.
