Presenting a fantastic work of Swedish Mid Century Modernist design, crafted in the wonderful combination of brass and glass.
This piece was designed by Swedish designer Gunnar Ander and is in a rare formation of six stylised floral bobeches (glass collars), supported by the undulating brass frame. The four corner arms steadies the brass form and converge on the two lightly elevated central arms and each sconce will take a taper candle measuring 12 mm / 1/2".
Whether fitted with candles or not, this sculpted piece is a beautiful display of elegant and sleek Modernist design and would suit a room with similar themed, Art Deco or Vintage decor.
Excellent. The glass carries no chips, scratches or chips. The brass has vintage surface wear that is commensurable with age - please see photos as part of condition report.

A BIT OF HISTORY
Ystad Metall was founded in Sweden in 1833 and went on to produce some of the most notable designs in bronze and brass home accessories of the twentieth century.
Gunnar Ander (1908 - 1976) was a Swedish designer and architect. Ander's was hired by Erik Hovhammar from Lindshammars Glassworks to develop a new design profile to differentiate them from the competition. He worked alongside with Ystad Metall, where he designed wrought iron and other art objects. Ander's candelabras from the fifties elegantly captures the spirit of that time. He continued his work at Lindshammars and Ystad Metall (later Scandia Present AB ) until his death in 1976.
