  • $8,000.00


Pair of model No.191 table lamps by Finnish designer Timo Sarpaneva.

Iittala Oy, Finland (glass parts), Luxus Ab, Sweden (lamp manufacturer) circa 1964.

Measures: 51 x 34 cm each
Mold-blown glass and plastic with a fabric shade.

The glass base manufactured by Iittala Oy (Iittala Glassworks), Finland. Produced into a lamp exclusively by Luxus Ab (in collaboration with Iittala Oy), Sweden c.1964. Both items signed with manufacturer's label and model No.191 to underside

Each glass base unique due to its production process, where glass material is mouth-blown to a handmade and burned wooden mold, which keeps changing by some during the process and could be used only a limited number of times. This process is clearly visible in this pair, with both of the pieces having an unique character of their own.
