Murano art glass large flush light with a solid brass base by Hillebrand Lighting, 1970`s ca, German. The solid brass base is finished with an elegant satin effect.Thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina. 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 large vintage light, by quality German manufacturer Hillebrand, was designed to work as either a ceiling or wall light hung vertically. While this design by Hillebrand dates from the 1970`s, with the Brutalist ‘ice’ effect glass, the classical form is reminiscent of earlier Art Deco Lighting. At the focal point there is a large handmade Murano glass shade. The quality glass alongside the satin 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 large decorative feature on a wall. The round glass shade has a swirling pattern of milky white & clear blown cased glass. It has been polished to a gloss finish on the external side. The result is a softly diffused light and lots of movement. The shade rises at the centre creating a convex shape. The removable shade is secured to a large circular quality solid brass plate with a satin finish, through 4 large decorative satin brass bolts. These bolts screw into individual vertical cylindrical solid satin brass columns extending from the satin brass base. The glass shade sits securely in place and is easily removed to gain access to change the light bulbs. The base is screwed to the ceiling or wall through 4 holes on the main solid brass plate. Behind the main satin brass plate there is a secondary inner circular gilt metal plate with a vertical trim that attaches flush to the wall, adding strength and creating depth to the design. This light Carries 3 standard E 14 small screw light bulbs up to 40 Watts each. At present fitted and photographed with 25 Watts clear Candle light bulbs, which are included in the price. The lamp holders are covered by decorative solid satin brass tubes. The original vintage maker`s label is present on the back of the base. This vintage flush light is in very good condition. The brass surfaces are sound with the original clear lacquer present and a light patina in line with age & wear. The glass shade is in very good condition with no chips to the edges or cracks, and only minor wear around the holes, on the backside, where it screws to the base in line with age & wear.
