One of Four Kalmar Tulipan Wall Lights Sconces, Clear Bubble Glass, 1970

About the Item

One of four 'Tulipan' glass wall light fixtures by J.T. Kalmar, Austria, Vienna, manufactured in midcentury, circa 1970 (late 1960s or early 1970s). Currently 8 pieces are available. The name Tulipan derives from the tulip shaped hand blown bubble glasses. Each glass is handmade and therefore a unique piece. A sconce is made of a white enameled metal frame which holds nine glasses with brass bolts. Each fixture has one socket for an E14 candelabra screw base LED or bulb (max. 40W). It is possible to install this fixture in all countries (US, UK, Europe, Asia, Canada,) although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity. It also can be used with a dimmer. The lamps are in very good condition and ready to use. The price is per lamp. They are sold individually, as pair, or as set of three or four lamps. Shipping price depends on number of ordered items. The lights are labelled and documented in the Kalmar catalogue from the 1970s. Kalmar had a co-operation with several Italian glass makers located in Murano (e.g. Mazzega, Venini) and got the glasses from there. Several other European companies like Orrefors (Sweden), Limburg and Hillebrand from Germany, and Arredoluce, Silnovo, Fontana Arte from Italy used hand blown or textured glass for their lamps in 1950s-1970s.
