A huge Italian "Cubic" chandelier with chromed shades by Gaetano Sciolari. With thirty-seven individual lights on four geometric arms, the perspex shades cast an amazing nuanced light.

Gaetano Sciolari was one of Italy's most prominent mid-century designers. The cubic range is highly sought after, this version being Sciolari's largest and most impressive.

Dating from the 1960s, this chandelier is in excellent vintage condition. The chrome is bright and untarnished and it is structurally perfectly robust. There are a few minor marks and dents, barely noticable when in use. Professionally rewired and safety tested, it is in full working order.

With new translucent white and thick clear perspex shades it is fitted with 4W LED bulbs, resulting in extremely low energy consumption of only 148 watts (all thirty-seven lights combined). These bulbs have extremely long life and are easy to replace.

It bears the Sciolari maker label, to the reverse of the ceiling plaque (pictured below).
