Brass colored brushed aluminium with a high gloss reflector ring that is orange on the inside reflecting a fire like shine. Good condition with some minor scratches as seen in the last image. The bottom plastic grid has a silver coating which is rare in these lights.

The diameter is 40 cm and hight 20 cm. It takes a standard E27 lightbulb. Designers label intact.

The real name of the designer known as Carl Thore was Sigurd Lindkvist born 1916 in Åmal in Sweden’s Dalsland. After working for a lighting firm called Luko, in 1961 Lindkvist joined Granhaga Metallindustri, for whom he designed lights and was also head of sales, remaining with the company until he retired in around 1981. Lindkvist adopted the pseudonym Carl Thore for his Granhaga light designs on the spur of the moment when he was presenting the lights to a client who asked the identity of the designer. “Carl Thore,” Lindkvist blurted out, these being his two middle names.
