This great example of Swedish lighting design will fit in even a low ceiling room. It is crafted with a brass fitting and a thick glass pale blue bowl etched with fanciful tropical fish and coral. It is reminiscent in style to the Art Nouveau cameo glass like Gall̩ with the glass cut back leaving the design in relief to the background. Orrefors is known for this type of work also.
