Modernist Italian Sputnik Chandelier, circa 1955

About

Very rare and sculptural modernist Stilnovo attributed chandelier from the 1950s in brass, lacquered aluminum and perspex diffusers. Dark patinated brass hardware with a slim disk-shaped centerpiece which is positioned at an angle in classic "Sputnik/Saturn" manner. Attached to this centerpiece are three large 21" rocket-shaped red lacquered cones with brass tips on one end and light source and acrylic shade on the other end. The cones can be rotated 360 degrees to create different lighting situations. Very nice original condition with a lovely dark patina on the brass and some light wear to the lacquered cones. Three original brass and ceramic E27 sockets with new wiring. Measure: Total drop height is approximately 45inches/114cm.
