This large sculptural vintage wall light, by quality German manufacturer Hillebrand, has an impressive Brutalist ‘ice’ effect glass with undulating form. 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. The large size & sculptural design make it perfect when a single wall light is needed, say in a corridor, stairwell or bathroom. At the focal point there is a large handmade Murano clear glass shade. The outside surface is polished to a shine and has an undulated wave pattern simulating ice or water. The internal surface is textured with a layer of sparkling crystal shards. The result is a softly diffused light with depth & delicate sense of movement. The removable glass shade slides down into the frame. The glass shade sits securely in place and can be easily removed to gain access to change the 2 light bulbs. The base consists of a central rectangular vertical metal column, in white lacquer, with solid brass folds on each side, where the glass shade slides on. There are two gilt metal lamp holders, both facing upwards. The base can easily be screwed to the ceiling or wall through 2 holes, one at the top and the other at the bottom.
