The light has a very large Cased Opal Glass lampshade that has a pale pink etched pattern to its base and flat rim. At the top the shade has a large 6 Inch Gallery rim onto which fits the original period three screw gallery. The gallery is made from heavy brass and has a large oversized ornate hanging eye. The gallery comes with its original ceiling rose that has a highly stylised hook and its original threaded fitment in place for attaching the light. The light is offered with a length of heavy Brass coated chain for hanging.The light has a later earthed Brass bulb holder & a length of modern earthed wiring. When lit the shade provides a lovely soft lighting effect. Please see my images for the best description. Condition is good for its age. Please note the following points.....
The bulb holder and earthed wiring are not original. The Brass gallery & ceiling rose have marks from use and tarnish marks from age. One of the screws in the gallery is slightly off but still operates ok and holds the shade firmly in place.Minor speckling to the brass coated chain. The glass is good - it is free of cracks or repairs - There is one chip to the gallery rim that is not seen in use. The etched pattern to the glass has faded in places but still looks good. The light does have marks & scuffs from use along with a few small imperfections from manufacture as well as general signs of life associated with an Antique piece of lighting but when hung nothing that spoils.
Again - Please see my images for details. Max Hanging drop is 72 Cm (can be shortened) - Shade Diameter is 40 Cm - Pendant height, including hanging eye is 40 Cm. Please see my other items for more Vintage and Antique Lighting.
