Brass chandelier by Itsu of Finland. Mid-20th century.
A high-quality cascading chandelier featuring three brass shades made of brass (off white on the inside). The original ceiling canopy is in place and the Itsu stamp appears on the shades. This design, model ER 94/3, appears in the company's catalogue, 1950s, and for us is a very nice example of Scandinavian Modern design.
The piece is old and has been used and there are signs of wear which we have left unpolished and as found. Flaws include dings, slight ovalling, scratches and losses to the lacquer over the brass - leaving darker tones - and yellowing and losses to the white paint inside the shades, particularly in the upper half near and above the bulb. See images for overview and zoom in for examples of details (or just contact us if you require more). We have categorised the piece as in fair condition to draw attention to these points; that said for us the lamp is still a nice vintage piece with character and a warm tone to the metal.
New wiring will be required in the country of install, and we advise low heat bulbs to protect the fixture for the future. UK clients, just let us know if we can help with this step.
Approximate dimensions as shown:
Each shade is approximately 30cm tall with a lower diameter of approximately 15cm.
*The overall drop is based on the original cables and could be adjusted on re-wiring.
