Set of two brass and chromed floor lamps, 1960s
Unique set consisting of two different, but matching and rare floor lamps.
The lamps are made of copper plated aluminium and chromed stainless steel. The shades of the lamps are similar; they are adjustable in height and rotatable. The copper plated aluminium parts give the set a sophisticated and chic appearance.
The smaller version of the two lamps has a round base and has one shade. The measurements of this piece are: height 120 cm / 48 inch, width of the shade 12.5 cm / 5 inch, depth of the shade 21.5 cm / 9.5 inch and the diameter of the base is 19 cm / 8 inch.
The higher version has a square base and two shades. The measurements of this piece are: height 132 cm / 52 inch, width of the shade 12.5 cm / 5 inch, depth of the shade 21.5 cm / 9.5 inch and the sides of the base are 20.5 cm / 9 inch.
Both pieces are in very good condition considering their age and the material used. There is a small dent in the shade of the smaller version (see second and penultimate picture) and both lamps have some minor traces of usage.
Only for sale as a set. The price is for the set.
These lamps are often attributed to Peter Nelson for Architectural Lighting Company and sometimes to the Swiss manufacturer Baltensweiler, with no provenance on the designer. Although both pieces are of high quality and they would therefore fit these manufacturers, we have not found any confirmation of this. The lamps are also attributed to Lyfa, Denmark. Lyra has indeed manufactured comparable lamps which are called Piccolo, but these lamps are less complex and detailed than the ones on offer.
