659 inc. VAT

Wife of the famous Dutch Golden Age artist Johannes Vermeer, Catharina supported his career behind the scenes by managing household finances and raising their 11 children. Although their marriage was born out of pragmatism, a tender romance blossomed over time. Catherine often served as Vermeer's model, capturing her stoic beauty in iconic works such as Woman in Blue reading a letter. When Vermeer went bankrupt in 1675, the steadfast Catharina bravely continued running the family's art business and inn, ensuring that her husband's artistic legacy lived on. She protected his famous canvases until her death in 1684.

With its delicate two-armed silhouette, the Catherina 234 adds a sophisticated accent to walls with handcrafted 19th-century charm. Measuring just 25 cm high and 22 cm wide, this striking yet small fixture of solid copper features intricate scrollwork along its circular frame. The Catherina 234 is long-winded yet modernly wired. It casts a cosy ambient glow, an ideal accent light alongside the Vermeer collection of electric chandeliers. With its graceful curves, ornate details and antique finish, this small two-armed wall lamp embodies the enduring elegance of Dutch metal art. Electric wall chandeliers Catherina combine well with the electric chandeliers model Vermeer.
