Pair of Gino Sarfatti Model #10 Sconces in Red for Arteluce

About the Item

Pair of Gino Sarfatti Model #10 sconces in red for Arteluce. Executed in red painted aluminum and custom fabricated period styled brass backplates designed to mount over a standard American j-box for hardwiring. Ball jointed arm allows flexible shade adjustments and multiple configurations. Originally designed between 1937-1941, the simplicity of Sarfatti's iconic Model #10 "detto Calla" or "Lily" shade design with its sculptural shaping of the materials make for an incredibly refined example of the lighting master's incomparable style. Salvaged from a midcentury building in Italy slated for demolition, these were originally configured in multi-shade half rings that were mounted around pillars. The original paint was beyond saving on all but a handful of lamps, which we have available in the original green in a separate listing. Professionally repainted black, green, and white versions also available. Price is for the pair. 8 pairs available in red. Ref: Romanelli & Severi "Gino Sarfatti: 1938-1973, selected works" p. p. 386 + various configurations pp. 69 & 151. Arteluce was one of the most innovative lighting design companies in Italy during the midcentury era. Their designs have been long sought after by collectors in the know. Not UL listed, but recommended UL listing possible from authorized 3rd party vendor upon request for an additional fee. Wired for US electrical. Custom period styled brass back plates for mounting over a standard American j-box. Accommodates a single US 40W candelabra bulb. Some minor scuffs and dings noted only for accuracy.
