Lamps designed by Wiktor Berndt / Flygsfors
« on: November 07, 2006, 12:47:57 AM »
I`m not a collector, but got curious about two identical lamps which I got from a friend that was rebuilding his old house.
They are made in white glass and brass and designed by the swedish designer Wiktor Berndt that worked at Flygsfors from 1955-74.
Up to now my searches on the net has ended up in vases and plates, but I cant find any lamps from his production.
I would be very greatful if anyone have some information about these lamps.
Pictures can be sent if neccasery
Thanks in advance.

It would really help if you could post a picture or two preferably including any signatures or markings. I've a good collection of Wiktor Berndt pieces and would be very interested to take a look as I've only come across one lamp of his in the past.
There is no distance on earth as far away as yesterday.

Hi there

Thanks for responding to my answer.

I`m new here in this message board and dont know how I put the picture into the message or into the answer to you. If you could send me an empty mail, I`ll return it with the picture attached.
I`m afraid its not a very good, professional picture, but as you dont know anything about my pro photographer background I hope it will do.   :D
If not, just tell me and I will take a new one.  

My E-mail address is  in the email button below. (e-mail address removed by Moderator to prevent it being spammed.)

I really appreciate your help.

Hi Harald, there's a sticky posting a couple of messages above this one called 'POSTING PICTURES' - it tells you how to upload piccies to the board, it's really easy when you know how  :wink:   I'm really looking forward to seeing your lamp - I particularly like Wiktor Berndt's work also although I don't own any.
