1940s Italian Brass Flush Mount by Paolo Buffa

About

Beautiful Italian brass and satin glass flush mount from the 1940s attributed to Paolo Buffa. The main structure is constructed entirely of brass (lacquered an off-white on the inside) with a lovely sculpted and very uniquely scalloped rim. The back is curved so that the fixture appears to float underneath the ceiling. Very nice original condition with patina on the brass. Three original brass and ceramic E27 sockets with new wiring. Similar references can be found in the lighting Paolo Buffa designed for a 1946-48 Milanese apartment building at Via Mauro Macchi 42. (Literature: "Ingress di Milano", Taschen)
