A candle wall sconce for two candles, made of black-lacquered wrought metal with four inset glass roundels in orange and green, produced by Swedish smithy, Äkta Torsmide. The roundels are from the 'Arkitektur-Glas' series, designed by Christer Sjögren for Swedish glassworks, Lindshammar Glasbruk.
The wrought metal is arranged with heart-shaped motifs that hold the rings in which the roundels are mounted.
The roundels themselves are hand-poured, using open-backed casting, which necessarily incorporates the foibles of hand-made glass processes - random bubbles, swirls and ripples - but present a smooth front surface.
The sconce can be hung very easily on a simple single screw or nail.
Bears original foil label to the reverse.
