Swedish Art Deco Etched Glass Bowl and Nickel Plate Pendant Light

Ref: L2830
Possibly Orrefors Glassworks (Sweden, 1898-present)

This great example of Swedish lighting design will fit in even a low ceiling room. It is crafted with a brass fitting and a thick glass pale blue bowl etched with fanciful tropical fish and coral. It is reminiscent in style to the Art Nouveau cameo glass like Gallé with the glass cut back leaving the design in relief to the background. Orrefors is known for this type of work also.

Literature: The Brilliance of Swedish glass 1918-1939, p. 107 for examples of this type of glass technique.
c. 1930-50
