Pair - 2 - original space age 1970's Luigi Colani wall sconces created for Villeroy & Boch. MCM canary yellow ceramic with chromed metal and large 'ball' frosted glass bulbs. Fantastic bathroom modernist lighting, German design wall sconces in the bold colors we've come to identify with the 1970's. Industrial designer Luigi Colani biomorphic lights.
CONDITION: Excellent - looks to never have been used. All wiring intact and ready to be mounted to the wall. I am not certain but I do believe that these would work with a 220V and 110V system - suitable for all countries. However, as with all electrical pieces I feel it my duty to say that they should be checked by a qualified electrician!
SIZE: Height: 10.2" Depth: 7.3" Diameter of glass ball: 5.9" Chrome wall mounting: 5.5" x 3.1"
The German industrial designer Luigi Colani is known for its aerodynamic, biomorphic and natural forms for cars, airplanes and many other objects of use.

Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
