Rare Custom Snowflake Chandelier by Paavo Tynell for Taito OY
Finland | c. 1952
Polished brass, brass wire, brass mesh. 3 x E26 (Edison) sockets & 24 x E12 (candelabra) sockets. 24 brass rods suspend 114 “snowflakes” around the fixture, creating a masterful play on light diffusion. One of the largest examples of Tynell's masterful snowflake chandelier that we've ever seen on the market.
h. 77.0" diam. 44.0"
Condition: Very good vintage condition. Metal shows overall signs of age, oxidation and wear. Snowflakes have been restrung at some point (this makes them more secure than the original spot weld). Some hooks (connecting each string of snowflakes to fixture) have been replaced. Wiring and sockets have recently been updated.
Notes: Private collection - CT.
