Sleek, elegant and sophisticated, this fantastically modernist piece was crafted circa 1960 (late 1950s - early 1960s), carrying the height of mid century modern design influences. The shade is made with brass, smoothed to form a belt with circular gaps of varying sizes and hot molten glass was handblown through the belt to create the 'caged bubbles' effect.
As a result of the high temperature of the melted glass during the crafting process, the brass developed a unique and wonderful patina and therefore each light is a one-of-a-kind piece in its own right. The electrical fittings for this light has been adapted with a plug, however this can easily be removed and the light can be fitted as suspended ceiling lamp.
As you can see from the photographs, this light is beautiful whether it is lit up or not. Would suit a Mid Century Modern, Vintage, Contemporary or even Industrial decor themed room.
