Tommi Parzinger for Dorlyn Silversmiths Four Arm Brass Wall Candelabrum

$2,600

About

Grand scale wall mounted candle sconce with four branches designed by Tommi Parzinger for Dorlyn Silversmiths. This uncommonly seen candelabrum measures 21” wide x 10” high x 10” deep. Medallion 8” diameter. Signed on the back. The brass arms are solid rod not hollow tube otherwise I might be tempted to electrify it. The conical candle holders unscrew from the arms for ease of cleaning. See original drawing by Parzinger from Cooper Hewitt collection for a similar design. Per the original brochure from Dorlyn there was another version of this candle sconce with glass hurricane shades and different cups. Tommi Anton Parzinger (1903–1981) was a German furniture designer and painter. Born in Munich in 1903, he later moved to New York City in 1932, starting his first company in 1939. He had begun by designing for Manhattan style-setter Rena Rosenthal. His works were collected by famous clients, including Billy Baldwin, Marilyn Monroe, and a number of high-fashion New York families. Parzinger's last showroom, on East 57th Street, was closed not long after his death in 1981.
