This beautiful lamp has the original wiring, and works great.

Ø - 30 cm. / 11.8 inch.
11 Original E14 Edison screw-fittings for 25 Watt lightbulbs.
Considering this model has 11 bulbs, I recommend 4 watt LED bulbs, this lamp gives a lot of light.
At the moment it contains candle lightbulbs, but it is of course possible to use a different type of bulb, mirror-head, big bulbs or small refrigerator bulbs.
Bulbs are not included.
Italian lighting designer Angelo Gaetano Sciolari was born in 1927.
In 1949 he start by the family business, Sciolari Lighting, which was originally founded in 1892.
In the mid-to-late-1960s, Sciolari's designs for his own manufacturing company began to take off with high-end interior designers in Europe and the US. This body of work was influenced by a range of art movements, from Cubism and Deconstructivism, to Minimalism, but always exhibited a sophisticated, sculptural, and even futuristic interpretation. He utilized crystal and ice glass while juxtaposing highly polished metals against satin finishes, including the unconventional combination of brass with chrome.
During the 1970s, Sciolari Lighting imported lamps to America via Lightolier & Progress Lighting.
Sciolari passed away in 1994. Today, his lamps, pendants, and chandeliers fetch high prices and are highly-sought after by collectors.
