Beautiful and rare chandelier composed of three Alvar Aalto Golden Bells manufactured by Louis Poulsen. These are the original lamps manufactured by hand in Denmark during the 1950's.
Chandelier was assembled at a later stage. Ring is copper and canopy is brass, it has the same aging as the lamps, so I assume they have been together since inception. Lamps have signs of ware but it just add to the beauty of the piece. There are no scratches or dents, it is the aging on the brass. Please see pictures for details.And let me know if you need more details. The A330S pendant light, known also as Golden Bell, was originally designed for the Restaurant Savoy in 1937. A330S pendant is made of one single piece of steel with a polished brass coating on the outside. The white inside reflects a clean, pleasant light. Designing lights had a central part in Alvar Aalto's work for him lighting played an important role in architecture. Lamps were a part of the whole that he wanted to control to the smallest detail. Many of Aalto's lights were originally created for a particular building. Golden Bell Chandelier manufactured by Louis Poulsen" is in sale since Sunday, March 7, 2021.
