This is a small glass table lamp designed by Carl Fagerlund for Orrefors glassworks in Sweden. Deep blue color and a brass ring just under the lamp socket. It has the hand made inscription “Orrefors RD” followed by a series number that is difficult to read. The glass base is 16 cm tall and in great condition.
The shade is made from repurposed 1960s fabric wrapped around a new wire frame. The print is called “Folklore” and was created by Göta Trägårdh. This is the original print from the 1960s, very well kept, free from stains and with the original vibrant colors still present.
Standard E27 lightbulb.
