Pair of luxurious table lamps by Gaetano Sciolari, Italy, circa 1970. This exceptional pair is made of beautiful gilded metal with very nice classical styled fabric hoods. Both lamp are marked “Sciolari” and “Mod. 543” at the bottom. The pieces emit a beautiful warm light and their colour lights up beautifully when lit. In good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving an amazing patina. Angelo Gaetano Sciolari (1927-1994) graduated with a degree in architecture and then went on to train as a filmmaker. He had a sudden career change in 1949, when is father passed away, and he took over Sciolari Lighting at the age of 22. His family owned Sciolari Lighting since 1892, only 13 years after Thomas Edison patented the first light bulb. Sciolari was not only an amazing lighting designer, but also a wonderful entrepreneur. Under Gaetano Sciolari, the Sciolari Lighting business expanded tremendously and became the first Italian lighting manufacturer to sell in the United States through Lightolier. Sciolari lamps were also manufactured by Stilnovo in Milan, Boulanger in Belgium, and Stilkrone in Germany. In addition to building up the Sciolari Lighting business and contributing so many wonderful lighting designs, Gaetano Sciolari was also the founder and president of the Italian Lighting Manufacturer’s Association.
