Large circular glass flush mount in heavily textured clear glass by Kaiser, Germany, mid-20th century.
Single piece of handcrafted textured clear glass, incorporating three metal wires and held in place by three silver-plated brackets. A beautiful piece of glass which, for us, brings to mind the brutalist organic ice sculpture of Tapio Wirkkala.
Good vintage condition overall, and due to the age and nature of this piece there may be minor imperfections in the glass. We have had the three brackets professionally re-plated; this was carried out after the main image was taken, and image 5 shows the brackets after the work.
Behind the glass, the ceiling plate is white metal, with six ceramic bulb-holders installed, each taking a small screw-fitting bulb (E14), and the original cable cover is in place in the centre. The position of the bulb-holders is set out to create a triangle of light, diffused by the glass. The original base plate advises maximum wattage of 40W, however in order to protect this fixture for the future, we advise low-heat bulbs are installed. New wiring will be required to suit your local needs and regulations. Please note this is a heavy piece which will require suitable installation.
