About

An original, elegant 1960s Tommi Parzinger design in plated silver with hand tooled decorative elements. Nine-light sources, including the large downward light. Newly rewired. A rare and beautiful design. Bio: 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. Initially after coming to the United States in 1932, Parzinger started his own company that focused on designing original types of household silverware. Most of the silverware he made in the company was custom, "hand-hammering" them from sheet metal. A 1939 LIFE article stated that his silverware was unique in its "light, graceful feeling and Fine etched decoration". The article went on to state that Parzinger, at the time, was recognized as the "most creative original designer of silverware in the United States. Parzinger's works were titled "high-style modernism", which represented a "more idiosyncratic, rarefied Midcentury design". Most of the pieces he created were custom-built for large studios, with Parzinger using "cosmopolitan-looking designs, involving costly, Craft-intensive materials and processes like brass work and lacquer".
