About

A gorgeous and rare table lamp model 'Arnold' no. 1191 by J.T. Kalmar, Vienna, manufactured in midcentury, circa 1960 (late 1950s or 1960s). The light is documented in the Kalmar catalog from 1953 and 1960. It is made of a solid brass stand and a braided leather handle. The adjustable lamp shade is covered with parchment. The light has one socket for a medium or standard screw base bulb. It is in very good condition with beautiful patina on brass and ready to use. About Kalmar: Founded in Vienna by Julius August Kalmar in 1881, Kalmar first specialized in the production of handcrafted objects of cast bronze. After the turn of the century, Julius Theodor Kalmar, son of the original founder, studied under the renowned Austrian architect and designer Josef Hoffmann. In the following years the company realized modern lighting concepts and designs. Kalmar worked together with the Austrian Werkbund and the most important Austrian architects like Josef Frank, Oskar Wlach, Oswald Haerdtl, Clemens Holzmeister, Ernst Plischke, and Oskar Strnad. Kalmar used traditional materials like glass, bronze, brass, and wood. His designs, including this chandelier, lacked ornament but favoured instead a purist aesthetics. Kalmar produced lightings of great craftsmanship, high quality workmanship, and timeliess design.
