About this vintage design furniture

This is a classic pendant light by Carl Thore for Granhaga Metallindustri, Sweden late 1960s. Copper colored brushed aluminum with an orange reflector ring. Good overall condition with some minor scratches but no dents. The top of the lamp has a worn surface as seen in the detail image. This can be repainted but I have chosen to leave it in clean original condition. This part of the lamp is only seen from above. Bottom plastic grid in perfect condition. The diameter is 40 cm and hight 20 cm. It takes a standard E27 lightbulb. The real name of the designer known as Carl Thore was Sigurd Lindkvist, and he was born in 1916 in Åmal in Sweden’s Dalsland. After working for a lighting firm called Luko, in 1961 Lindkvist joined Granhaga Metallindustri, for whom he designed lights and was also head of sales, remaining with the company until he retired in around 1981. Lindkvist adopted the pseudonym Carl Thore for his Granhaga light designs on the spur of the moment when he was presenting the lights to a client who asked the identity of the designer. “Carl Thore,” Lindkvist blurted out, these being his two middle names.
