For sale a fabulous pair of "Clair-Obscur" (model C-1516) wall lights / sconces by Dutch lighting creator RAAK Amsterdam, dating from the 1960s. This iconic pair of mid-century black lacquered metal and copper wall lights, can be hung separately or as a pair, in various layouts and directions and make quite a statement.
Consisting of a bisected cube shaped body with two closed faces, one with a grid of copper tubed apertures which emanate a soft filtered light and two open sides that give off a lovely up-down glow; the overall effect is one of light and shade. The lights are in working order and in good vintage condition, with marks and scratches commensurate with 50+ years of age & use but nothing to overly detract (please see photos for the worst of it). Both lights still retain their original Raak Amsterdam stickers on their mounting plates.
As with all vintage electrics it is advisable to have these checked and installed by a qualified electrician. Dimensions: W 27.5cm / H 20cm / D 15cm. We also have another three of these lights (not yet listed) with white mounting back plates.
