Newly rewired, earthed, in full working order & ready to install. Light bulbs included. It is possible to install this light in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity. It can be used with a dimmer. This vintage light, by quality German manufacturer Hillebrand, was designed to work as either a ceiling or large wall light. While this light is from the 1970`s, with the Brutalist ‘ice’ effect glass, the classical form is reminiscent of earlier Art Deco Lighting. It is flush mount and has decorative solid brass pins like a sunburst. At the focal point there is a large handmade Murano glass shade. The quality glass alongside the gold tone of the solid polished brass gives this Minimalist design elegance. This light is ideal for a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Classical, Hollywood Regency, Minimalist or Contemporary; perfect for when a flush light is needed with low ceilings or as a substantial sculptural addition to a wall. The quality clear glass shade is textured & bubbled, the edge simulates a water/ice effect. The outside surface is polished to a shine, while the internal surface is textured & natural with a layer of sparkling crystal shards. The result is a softly diffused light. The removable glass shade has 3 holes along the side, and is secured to a large circular quality metal plate through 3 large decorative solid brass bolts around the circumference. These pins screw into individual metal arms extending from the brass base. The glass shade sits securely in place and can be easily removed to gain access to change the light bulbs. The round base is in polished brass which reflects a warm tone. The base can easily be screwed to the ceiling or wall through 3 holes situated in line with the 3 arms that hold the shade. This flush light carries 3 standard screw E27 light bulbs up to 60 Watts each. At present fitted and photographed with 25 Watts clear Candle light bulbs. These are included in the price. This vintage light is in very good condition. The glass shade is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. The solid brass surfaces have the original clear lacquer on, and are in very good condition with a warm age patina in line with age. Packing is offered free of charge.
