Large scale Paavo Tynell Fantasia snowflake chandelier for Taito Oy. Comprised of 80 of Tynell’s most intricately crafted snowflakes in three different unique variations. This breathtaking chandelier casts a warm glow of light from the intricately perforated brass bowl upwardly illuminating the delicate hand-cut brass snowflakes and casting long shadows on the ceiling which gently move with the flow of the natural circulation of air in the room. The lighting effects of this lamp create a uniquely soothing and dramatic ambient landscape on the ceiling of any room. This is one of the rare early examples created by Tynell’s own company Taito Oy when he was the head designer and chief executive officer before they merged with Idman in 1954. The entire lamp is crafted from solid brass and an attractive golden patina. The down-rod is a standard fitting that can easily be replaced to suit your specific needs. The lamp contains all 80 of the original snowflakes. Created, circa 1950.
This lamp is on loan for an exhibition and is not available for immediate shipping.
