Description

PEANUT lamp (P 163) - designed by Bent Karlby in 1946 and produced by LYFA - very rare and extremely attractive pendant in very good vintage condition!

This is a rare find (including all original parts) - and in this very good vintage condition!
Hand-blown opalized glass with an attractive curvy shape, complimented by a polished brass top and bottom. The brass bottom carries narrow peepholes, a Karlby trademark, and hold an opal glass diffuser plate - matte on one side to diffuse the light optimally. The bottom brass fixture is screwed onto the glass shade by four small screws. Towards the top, a flat brass "lid" is screwed onto the glass shade to lock it in place.
The thick opal glass shade is designed to provide a uniformly lit surface, while ensuring a soft comfortable light, while the opal glass diffuser in the bottom ensure a glare free experience.
In 1949 Bent Karlby designed a range of lights, produced by LYFA - 12 chandeliers, 13 pendants, two ceiling lights, 13 wall lights and one floor lamp - many similar with softly curvy opalized glass shades and decorative brass tops / bottoms, but different in their shapes and sizes.

When Karlby designed this curvy opal glass pendant with narrow waist in 1946, it was produced by LYFA under the name P 163. It was among the lighting design Karlby created for LYFA in 1949 - this time in three variation. In 1952 LYFA changed the name to PEANUT lamp. Some may also refer to this pendant as Snowball pendant.
Absolutely a charming and alluring vintage piece in very good vintage condition - fit for many purposes - like over a dining table or kitchen table, perhaps lighting up a stair way, or in the sitting area.
