Large 1950s Model 1244 Counterweight Chandelier by Gaetano Sciolari for Stilnovo
A large and impressive model 1244 chandelier by Gaetano Sciolari for Stilnovo, circa 1950.
In brass and lacquered aluminium, it is in excellent vintage condition.
The large shade reflects light from the brass three-bulb light source, which also emits light from a frosted glass diffuser beneath and through fine perforations.
The counterweight allows unlimited height and adjustment.
The brass has patina in keeping with vintage, which can be polished to a high shine as required.
Fully authenticated, the design, condition and pedigree of this chandelier put it in the top level of mid-century Italian lighting.
